|Law and Order
||Sal Pace voted against the passage of a law that would allow law enforcement to collect DNA samples from people arrested for felonies, known as Katie’s Law. “With the advent of DNA taken upon felony arrest, California has cleared or aided in the investigation of over 50 percent of the unsolved cases added to its database between January 2009 and July 1, 2011—with over 9,000 DNA matches between offender DNA database identification profiles and profiles from crime scene evidence,”
