There are currently 6,721 parolees at large in California and 564 parolees at large in San Bernardino County.
The operation will include personnel from the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division, Specialized Enforcement Division, and patrol stations, as well as California Highway Patrol and San Bernardino County Probation.
Operation Consequences will take place over the next several months to curb violent crime, disrupt and dismantle targeted criminal street gangs, and locate and arrest criminals who are illegally possessing, manufacturing, and trafficking firearms.To follow updates to this article and more, join our newsgroup on Facebook with over 165,000 members.
