 The Long Beach Police Department's Directed Enforcement Teams partnered with California State Parole and the Department of Homeland Security to impact violent crime in Long Beach. The teams conducted compliance checks on individuals on active parole with focus on the most violent offenders and documented gang members. The two-day operation also focused on specific individuals with outstanding arrest warrants for failing to comply with the conditions of their parole, and individuals with warrants related to open criminal charges.

The operation was held on April 1, 2015 and April 8, 2015. Fifty locations were searched, 17 felony arrests were made, 42 individuals were interviewed, and two search warrants were written and executed. As a result of the operation, the following individuals were arrested:

 One example of the relentless follow up needed to ensure compliance occurred on April 8, 2015 when the North Directed Enforcement Team wrote and executed a search warrant related to an armed and dangerous parolee at large. Suspect Clemente Munoz had been absconding for over a year and fled from officers on several occasions. Officers gathered information leading them to a residence that was not Munoz's address of record with California State Parole. Family members at the location denied that Munoz was there and refused to allow officers on the property to search for him. Officers held a perimeter while a search warrant was written and granted. Once the warrant was obtained, officers with the assistance of a police K-9, conducted a thorough search and found Munoz hiding in the attic.

The Long Beach Police Department will continue to work collaboratively with law enforcement partners to ensure parolees who live in Long Beach are in compliance with the conditions of their parole. We would like to thank the California State Parole and the Department Homeland Security for partnering with us to keep our city safe.
