“Compliance Sweep” Nets 17 Violators

“Compliance Sweep” Nets 17 Violators

Santa Barbara County – If you’re convicted of a crime and think that following your jail or prison term, you are released into the world “a free man (or woman),” think again. Even those released from custody following a long period of incarceration, presumably having served their sentence and “paid the penalty” for their crimes, remain under the watchful eye of law enforcement and are subject to arrest for the slightest infraction. The fact that such individuals are a long way from walking the streets again without a care in the world was proved on April 2nd when a county-wide “sweep” resulted in the arrests of no fewer than 17 individuals.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer Kelly Hoover, in issuing a report about the April 2nd arrests of on various parole and probation violation charges, described the law enforcement effort as “a multi-agency field operation” involving members of the Santa Barbara County Probation Department, Lompoc Police Department, California Highway Patrol, Santa Barbara Police Department, and the California Department of Justice which involved no less than 50 individual locations throughout the county.
