OPERATION: Home for the Holidays
Posted On: December 13, 2013
On December 13, 2013, the East San Gabriel Valley AB109 Task Force conducted compliance checks in the City of Whittier and the county of Whittier. The mission of the operation was to contact AB109 probationers, parolees and sex registrants to make sure they were in compliance with the terms of their release.
Statistics have shown the holiday season typically brings an increase in certain crimes. Many of those crimes are committed by repeat offenders who know that victims will tend to have more money and other property with them during the holiday season. Additionally, criminals who are on parole and probation or who have absconded tend to return home for the holidays to be with their families.
At the time of this press release, the AB109 Task Force checked 21 locations resulting in one arrest. This individual was transported to the Whittier Police Department Jail for processing.
If you have any questions regarding this operation, please feel free to contact the Community Relations Officer Brad White at 562-567-9208.
