FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEPress Release # 2014
NINE ARRESTED IN MULTI-AGENCY AB109 COMPLIANCE OPERATION
On June 4, 2014, the Long Beach Police Department was joined by several regional public safety partners and conducted an Assembly Bill 109 (AB109): Prison Realignment compliance operation.
The Long Beach Police Department’s Public Safety Realignment Team, along with members of the Los Angeles County Probation Department, the California Department of Corrections Parole - Compton Office, the US Marshals Taskforce, the Department of Children's and Family Services - Multi-Agency Response Team (MART), and the Signal Hill, Bell Gardens, South Gate, Torrance, Palos Verdes Estates, Manhattan Beach, and El Segundo Police Departments participated in the operation.
The multi-agency endeavor was formed to reduce crimes typically committed by habitual offenders and persons on parole and probation, as well as provide referral services to post-release supervised persons for housing assistance, addiction counseling, and mental health needs.
Over 100 residential/housing compliance checks of conditions of release were conducted throughout Long Beach. Over 140 post-release supervised persons were contacted. Six persons were arrested for violating the conditions of their release and three persons were arrested for sex registration offenses.
The outcomes of this multi-agency approach are expected to have a positive impact on the post-release population and crime throughout the countywide region. The Long Beach Police Department wishes to thank its many valued partners, without whom this operation would have not been possible, in this citywide effort.
