[ARCHIVED] AB109 Operation Results in Several Arrests

Hemet Police PD AB 109 Arrests

On November 10, 2015, a joint enforcement operation was conducted in the Hemet/San Jacinto
Valley. The operation consisted of saturation patrol, attempt warrant services, and compliance
checks on subjects on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS), Mandatory Supervision,
Parole, and Probation in the cities of Hemet, San Jacinto, and the unincorporated areas of Hemet.

The following agencies assisted with the operation:

Hemet Police Department- Crime Suppression Unit (CSU) & ROCS Team
Central P.A.C. Team (Post-release Accountability & Compliance Team)
East P.A.C. Team
West P.A.C. Team
Riverside County Probation Department- San Jacinto Probation AB109 Unit
All 8 regions of the Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force
Riverside Auto-theft Interdiction Detail (R.A.I.D.)
California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation- Division of Parole
California Highway Patrol K-9 Unit

The operation consisted of 122 pro-active enforcement stops, attempt warrant services, and
compliance checks, which resulted in the arrest of 31 individuals. 5 firearms, body armor,
numerous rounds of ammunition, a stolen vehicle, large quantities of methamphetamine, pounds
of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia were recovered as a result of the operation. There were
numerous subjects that failed to provide accurate addresses so warrants will be requested for
those individuals and arrests will be made.

In 2011, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill (AB) 109. It was Governor Brown’s solution for
reducing the number of inmates in the state’s 33 prisons to 137.5 percent of design capacity by
June 27, 2013, as ordered by the Three-Judge Court and affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Implementation of the 2011 Realignment Legislation began October 1, 2011. Under Realignment, newly-convicted “low-level” offenders without current or prior serious or violent
offenses stay in county jail to serve their sentence, which increases the county jail population for
each individual county. Those individuals released and were previously supervised by State
Parole Agents are now being supervised by county probation officers.

Riverside County public safety agencies formed multi-agency task forces, such as the Central
P.A.C. Team, to ensure that those individuals on Mandatory Supervision (also referred to as split
sentence) and PRCS (Post Release Community Supervision) are in compliance.
Central P.A.C. Team (Post-release Accountability & Compliance Team)
Central P.A.C. Team was originally formed in February of 2012 with participating agencies
which included Hemet Police Department, Palm Springs Police Department, Desert Hot Springs
Police Department, Beaumont Police Department, Cathedral City Police Department, Riverside
Co. DA’s Office, and Riverside Co. Probation Dept.

In May 2013, East P.A.C. Team was formed with primarily desert law enforcement agencies.
West P.A.C. Team was also formed with law enforcement agencies in western Riverside County.
Currently, the Central P.A.C. Team participating agencies are Hemet Police Department,
Beaumont Police Department, Murrieta Police Department, Riverside County Probation
Department, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department- Lake Elsinore Station, and the Riverside
County District Attorney’s Office- Bureau of Investigations.
