Oceanside CA- On Saturday, April 5, 2014, several agencies from North San Diego County conducted compliance checks on probationers who had been released from jail under guidelines of the State of California’s Early Release Program.
The program, California AB 109, shifts the responsibility for incarcerating many low-risk inmates from the state to counties. This shift from state to county is also being called “prison realignment.” It is supposed to help relieve the California prison over crowding problem- See more about AB 109 here [Link]
Thirty-five members of County Probation, the Carlsbad Police Department, the Escondido Police Department, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, and the Oceanside Police Department visited the residences of forty-three individuals.
Officers, agents, and deputies made five arrests for violations of probation conditions and/or warrants. They also conducted forty-five searches. The operation was conducted in the City of Oceanside utilizing funds provided by the State of California. All subjects were taken into custody without incident.
