“Summer Violent Crime Enforcement” nets 805 arrests

LANCASTER – The Lancaster Sheriff’s Station has announced the results of its annual “Summer Violent Crime Enforcement” operation.

This year’s operation began on May 15th and ended on September 27th. During that time, a team of four deputies and one sergeant made a total of 805 arrests (250 felonies and 555 misdemeanors). The team also recovered 11 firearms and conducted 79 parole and probation compliance checks, according to the news release.

The operation was funded by Supervisor Michael Antonovich as a means to increase police services for the unincorporated county areas that are patrolled by the Lancaster Sheriff Station, including Lake Los Angeles, High Vista, Quartz Hill and Antelope Acres.

Officials say the operation was well received by residents in the communities, as evidenced by 27 citizen and professional commendations awarded to the team members.

Lancaster Station Commander Captain Robert Jonsen said the arrest of 805 suspects will greatly impact the number of crimes being committed in our unincorporated areas.

    Wow. 805 arrests. How many convictions?

    Arrests mean little. Convictions show that there was a good reason for the arrest. Indeed, wasn’t it the father of the police, Sir Robert Peel, who once stated: “The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it.”

    You want less crime and disorder? Start by getting rid of R. Rex Parris and his criminal regime, which corrupts the Lancaster Sheriff Station and all that it touches!
