Santa Clara Court should review its compliance with state law's firearm prohibition reporting requirements at each of the other courthouse locations within its court and make the necessary adjustments to courthouse policies and practices so that it fully complies with state law by March 31, 2014.
We have fully implemented procedures in Criminal effective August 2013 and Probate effective December 2013. The procedure will be emailed as it is too long to contain herein.
Although we assessed the court's response to recommendation number 9 as only partially implemented, this was due to the court's new probate procedures and not due to its criminal procedures. Because the court's probate division is only located at a courthouse we visited during our audit, the only relevant procedures for other courthouse locations are the criminal procedures that meet the requirements in state law. For that reason, we consider this recommendation fully implemented.
Agency responses received are posted verbatim.
