Sheriff Chad Bianco discusses advocating for tougher state laws on crime

Earlier this week, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco joined other lawmakers in Sacramento in support of several new bills dealing with public safety.

Bianco told News Channel 3's Peter Daut that one of the bills would allow judges to issue tougher penalties for criminals who use guns.

He believes Californians have had enough and it's time to crack down on rising crime.

"Our criminals are being coddled, the punishment is next to nothing if anything. I'm not saying we have to put everybody in prison, but we need to get rid of the soft-on-crime policies that we have in Sacramento right now and start holding people accountable," Bianco said in an in-depth interview with Peter Daut.

During the interview, Bianco also said, "Really we're at a culmination of horrible bad policies that have come out of Sacramento over the last dozen years really, and there's nothing that has actually helped us. Every law they come up with actually hurts us in our ability to keep residents safe."
