ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — On May 11, 2024, a broad-scale security operation took place at the High Desert Detention Center (HDDC), located in Adelanto, California.

The initiative was a collaborated effort featuring key interventions from multiple law enforcement bodies, including the San Bernardino County Probation’s narcotics detection canines, the Narcotics Division of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

The HDDC officials emphasized their unwavering commitment to combatting contraband and maintaining a drug-free environment.
