"It is clear that Realignment is already dramatically changing criminal justice in California, with the state prison population under 140,000 for the first time since 1996," said Steve Bordin, President of CPOC and Chief Probation Officer of Butte County.

OROVILLE -- Steven K. Bordin, who assumed duties Monday as Butte County's new chief probation officer, said what California has done for the last 30 to 50 years to rehabilitate prisoners has been an absolute failure.
He believes the prisoner realignment program instituted late last year, and also known as post-release community supervision, will pave the way for a much better outcome.
"This is the most dynamic opportunity for probation departments in the last 50 years," Bordin said. "I think these programs will impact lives in a positive way."
He referred to so-called "evidence-based" rehabilitation measures many California counties have adopted as the best way to reduce the number of offenders who return to criminal activity and wind up back in prison.
Among other things, the programs consider the individual needs of offenders and their ability to adapt to proven rehabilitation methods.
Bordin said Oregon is among several states to institute evidence-based rehabilitation, and has had remarkable success.
Bordin, 57, said he won out over a large number of candidates, all of whom would have served the county well.
"I worked in Butte County probation 10 years ago and got to know a lot of the people that are still there," he said. "It's a highly professional organization and the officers have excellent investigative skills," he said. On Wednesday alone, Bordin said personnel from his office located and arrested three people being sought on warrants.
who have failed to report to community-based supervision officials make the news, especially if they commit serious crimes, but Bordin said the actual number of scofflaws is a very small percentage of the total.
Bordin was chief probation officer in Colusa County, and wrote the post-release supervision plan for that jurisdiction.
"The plan there is similar to Butte's, but here I've got a lot more staffing and resources to work with," Bordin said.
One of those resources is a reporting center established by the Butte County Sheriff's Office that requires offenders to personally check in with post-release supervision officials on a regular basis, and provide updates on their progress toward rehabilitation.
Realignment money from the state has allowed Butte probation to add some officers, and more may be on the way to help deal with the added workload.
Bordin has lived in Chico for several years, and graduated from Chico State University in 1988 with a bachelor's degree in industrial arts.
Bordin is a longtime volunteer with the Boys & Girls Clubs, where he teaches Tae Kwon Do to children from ages 8 to 18. He has studied the martial art since 1985 and is a sixth-degree master.
During his first couple of months on the job, Bordin said he plans to do a lot of "listening and learning," and find ways to make his staff even more successful.
Ken Moorage served as interim chief until Bordin came on board.
