Deputy District Attorney, on California Proposition 47
Carlsbad CA— Join Happy Hour Politics on Wednesday, November 18th, to meet Tia Quick, San Diego Deputy District Attorney. Ms. Quick will address California Prop 47, the Reduced Penalties for Some Crimes Initiative which appeared on the November 2014 ballot and was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. This law, referred to it as “The Safe Neighborhood and Schools Act” by supporters, reduces the classification of most “non-serious and nonviolent property and drug crimes” from a felony to a misdemeanor. It also promised to decrease the number of “minor” offenders in state prison. Ms. Quick states this law appears to have had the opposite effect in areas where it matters most…property crimes and violent crimes.
Ms. Quick has been a DDA for 23 years and is currently assigned as the Law Enforcement Liaison to the San Diego Police Department and nine other agencies where she works specifically on Informant issues, search warrants, arrest warrant and advises on legal questions. She has also served in the Major Narcotics Unit, JUDGE unit, GANG unit and the Superior Court unit during her time as a DDA. For the past ten years, the focus of her job as the liaison and in the Narcotics Unit has been the reviewing of search warrants, updating officers on the law regarding search and seizure, as well as helping maintain a positive relationship between police agencies and the DA’s Office.
