CALIFORNIA CITY – On Wednesday, Sept. 12, deputies from Lancaster, Palmdale and Altadena Sheriff’s Stations joined forces with deputies from Kern County Sheriff’s Office and officers from the California City Police Department to conduct a parole and probation compliance operation.
The operation, which was conducted from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the California City area, was the result of an overall increase in the number of parolees and probationers that have moved from the Antelope Valley area (Lancaster and Palmdale) to California City.
Due to limited resources, the California City Police Department has not been able to conduct routine compliance checks of these individuals.
During Wednesday’s operation, the officers and deputies conducted checks of 47 separate locations. These checks resulted in the arrest of 29 criminals.
The officers also seized two firearms, as well as narcotics.
Of the 29 arrested, 18 were on active parole or probation, and two of the parolees were listed as “Parolees at Large.”
The operation also included parole agents from the California Department of Corrections, as well as personnel form the Department of Children and Family Services.
Wednesday’s operation was the second time that Lancaster Station deputies have assisted the California City Police Department in a compliance check operation.
The first operation was conducted in January of last year. That operation resulted in 35 arrests.
