On March 30, 2019, a Perris Trespass Operation was conducted in the city of Perris. The operation was in response to numerous complaints received over a period of several months regarding subjects trespassing on private property. These complaints were received from private property owners and city staff. Due to the complaints, the private property owners and city staff filed trespass letters with the Perris Sheriff’s Station.
Over the last several weeks, Deputy Donnis Crawford visited the location and warned the subjects who were trespassing that if they didn’t leave, they would be arrested. Prior to the operation, Perris City Code Enforcement placed commercial dumpsters on the property and advised the subjects they would be returning on March 30th to throw away any trash left behind.
During the operation, sixteen individuals were contacted and were offered resources such as mental health services, medical services and shelter placement. Three of them accepted services and were provided transportation by outreach workers. Six were arrested for outstanding warrants and several abandoned vehicles were towed off the property by code enforcement.
This operation was conducted with the assistance of the Southwest Station Problem Oriented Policing Team, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Homeless Outreach Team, Perris City Code Enforcement and Perris City Animal Control. We also teamed up with the Social Work Action Group (SWAG), and North County Health Services who offered services to every individual we contacted.
Anyone with any information regarding this operation should contact Deputy D. Crawford at the Perris Station by calling 951-210-1000.
