Support AB2467

Victim Safety through GPS Monitoring

The PHCC- SD and Members Ryan and Ginny Scharbarth, are asking for your help.

After the tragic murder of their daughter, Ginny has testified before state lawmakers this past Tuesday in support of a bill that would allow authorities to use GPS technology to monitor targets of restraining orders.

Ginny Scharbarth said if Assembly Bill 2467 had been in effect last year, it may have prevented her daughter’s ex-boyfriend from ambushing and strangling her the night before Thanksgiving.

Letter from Ginny Requesting YOUR HELP:

On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, I appeared in Sacramento to support a bill written by Assembly member Ben Hueso of District 79. Assembly member Hueso has proposed a bill, AB2467 – Victim Safety through GPS Monitoring. It will increase safety for victims of domestic violence and stalking through GPS monitoring of their abusers. This bill will serve to turn the written words of a restraining order into real and tangible protection for victims. I testified in Kathy’s memory and for all women who fear for their lives.

Your support is vital. Please reach out to the members and ask them to support the bill. A simple phone call before Monday, April 23, 2012 to the members’ offices would be very helpful in getting this bill out of Public Safety Committee and on to the Judiciary Committee. Make sure you ask for the person who “briefs” the member on the Public Safety Committee or is assigned to that committee.

Thank you for your help. Let’s make a difference in Kathy’s honor and for all women who need protection.

Act Now!! Please call the following Assembly members and let them know you are in SUPPORT of the Victim Safety through GPS Monitoring before Monday!
