Bakersfield ASSP Virtual Chapter Meeting

Topic Changing Laws: The Reality and Consequences on Personal Protection, Public Security and Safety

Cynthia Zimmer will discuss how laws have changed over the last decade and reflect on the consequences those changes have had on public safety and security for organizations and individuals. For example, someone who steals your company or personal automobile ten times, may potentially never spend a day in state prison. This nonpartisan presentation is focused on changes to laws; it will explain why crime is up, what type of theft is up, and why we see homeless. If you heard her presentation a couple of years ago on gang awareness, and how it can help your organization and personal life, you know Cindy brings great insight and a perspective that you will want to hear.
