Perris “Zero Tolerance Saturation Patrol” nets 22 arrests
PERRIS — A “High Impact – Zero Tolerance Saturation Patrol” in the City of Perris led to the arrest of twenty-two people for a variety of charges Thursday, Aug 15. During the day-long operation, a team of deputies saturated the business district area of downtown Perris, contacting countless individuals suspected of criminal activity, having warrants, or committing crimes.
Other sheriff’s stations throughout Riverside County also performed “zero-tolerance” targeted enforcement operations this week, including Hemet, San Jacinto, and Moreno Valley. During Hemet and San Jacinto’s operation, deputies arrested twenty subjects for a variety of charges and Moreno Valley’s enforcement operation yielded a mind-boggling 157 arrests over a ten-hour period. Other area sheriff’s stations also performed similar operations this past week, but have not yet provided statistics for their operations.
LEADING THE RCNS HEADLINES:
During Thursday’s pro-active enforcement operation, five deputies assigned to the Perris Sheriff’s Station flooded the city’s downtown business district searching for anyone breaking the law or causing a nuisance for area business owners and residents, Riverside Sheriff’s Sgt. Victor Pierson said after the successful operation.
“The purpose of this operation was to address citizen and business owner complaints regarding subjects who were committing various criminal offenses in the area, which negatively impacted business operations,” Pierson explained.
During the operation, the five-man team “took a zero-tolerance stance against criminal activity”, arresting anyone and everyone they found had committed any violations or had outstanding warrants, according to the Sgt.
“During this operation, a total of 22 violators were arrested for various criminal offenses and booked into jail,” said Pierson; explaining, “Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is committed to improve the quality of life for all citizens and businesses in the city of Perris.”
