“The Collaborative Justice Courts Advisory Committee makes recommendations for improving the processing of cases in drug courts, domestic violence courts, peer courts and other community-based treatment courts. The committee proposes rules, standards and forms; reviews and recommends legislation; identifies potential funding sources; oversees the treatment court grant process; and acts on assignments referred to it by the Judicial Council,” the appointment letter stated.

The Administrative Office of the Courts is structured to provide recommendations for improving justice administration and it serves as the staff agency for the Judicial Council, which is the constitutional policy-making body of the California Courts. The agency is organized into nine divisions in San Francisco, two divisions in Sacramento and three regional offices with a staff of more than 900 serving the courts. The Collaborative Justice Courts Advisory Committee is a crucial committee among the 10 committees serving the Administrative Office of the Courts. One law enforcement representative appointed by the chief justice of the California Supreme Court sits on this advisory committee.

Peshon is currently assigned as the Sheriff’s Custody Division commander, responsible for managing and leading the division which consists of two jails, Placerville and Lake Tahoe, and the Bailiff and Transportation units. In addition to his normal duties, Peshon has been assigned to the Community Corrections Partnership Working Group, which is managing the impacts of AB109 (realignment). He is also deeply involved in transitional planning for mentally ill inmates, and managing the new sheriff’s headquarters design and construction project.

Peshon’s law enforcement career has spanned over 36 years, between the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, the United States Park Service and the East Bay Parks Police Department.

Peshon is a graduate of the University of California, Berkley. His leadership training includes being student, facilitator and auditor of the Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute, a graduate of the POST Command College and the prestigious FBI National Academy in Quantico, Va.

Sheriff John D’Agostini said, “I am very proud of Capt. Peshon’s appointment to this important committee, which has state-wide impacts; he is a recognized leader and expert in the court and corrections fields.”

Peshon’s appointment becomes effective Nov. 1 and ends on Oct. 31, 2016.
