New Panel to Designate Child Safety Zones

April 21, 2006|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Sheriff Bob Doyle is expected to form a commission today to designate child safety zones to help implement Jessica's Law, a proposed November ballot initiative that would toughen penalties for sex offenders and keep them at least 2,000 feet from schools and parks.

The group of local leaders will identify areas in Riverside County where children gather.

San Bernardino County officials, who are expected to announce the creation of a similar commission today, revealed plans this week to draft an ordinance to strengthen the state proposal.
