Update from O.C. Supervisor Janet Nguyen

I just received O.C. Supervisor Janet Nguyen’s latest newsletter. Highlights appear below:

Funds to fight gangs approved

At the August 21st Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to accept $50,519 in federal funds to fight gang activity in Santa Ana. The funds were made available through the Project Safe Neighborhood Initiative and will be used specifically on work to enforce the gang injunction in place in Santa Ana. The Orange County District Attorney and the Santa Ana Police Department are working together to enforce the gang injunction and bring an end to gang activity in Santa Ana.

Probation services expanded to curb delinquency

During the August 21st Board of Supervisors meeting, myself along with the rest of the Board voted in favor of renewing the contract for the provision of Probation Officer Services for the Community Schools Program. This joint program operated by the Orange County Superintendent of Schools and the Probation Department seeks to manage and rehabilitate at risk youth within the school systems. With the proper support from the Board and the community, it is the goal of both departments to curb juvenile delinquency within the County.
