This chapter demonstrates that the CCPOA’s success flowed in part from the union’s ability to develop mutually beneficial alliances with other organizations. It contends that the union’s most important allies are uniquely political and punitive crime victims’ groups, which the union effectively created. Since their inception in the early 1990s, the victims’ organizations have helped the CCPOA achieve power by proxy. As these groups became the voice of crime victims in California, they fundamentally altered the architecture of the state’s penal field.
