Momentum Continues as More Small Businesses Join the Californians for Safer Communities Coalition

The Bipartisan Ballot Measure Will Hold Repeat Retail Theft Offenders and Serious Drug Traffickers Accountable

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (April 5, 2024) More than 20 additional small businesses this week have joined the hundreds of other small businesses across the state to be a part of Californians for Safer Communities (C4SC) Coalition, the campaign leading the Homelessness, Drug Addiction, and Theft Reduction Act (Initiative 23-0017A1) to hold repeat retail theft offenders and serious drug traffickers accountable.

This bipartisan measure is focused on improving safety in every community and neighborhood in California. It focuses narrowly on accountability measures for repeat offenders of theft and drug traffickers of serious drugs like fentanyl, while incentivizing and encouraging more individuals to participate in and complete drug treatment programs. The measure creates a deterrent for repeat offenders and redirects some towards treatment rather than incarceration.

What the Measure Does

The proposed ballot measure will:

  • Hold those who are committing repeated retail theft and fentanyl sales crimes accountable, for the safety and health of our communities.
  • Create accountability for repeat smash and grab offenders who are driving up costs for all Californians and chasing retailers out of the state.
  • Bring back incentives and accountability that are needed for individuals to get into necessary drug treatment and job training programs — helping them begin new lives. Currently those arrested multiple times for hard drug use currently have no incentive to choose treatment with no consequences.

The Californians for Safer Communities (C4SC) Coalition is currently collecting signatures to qualify for the 2024 November General Election. For more information, please visit
