Body of News Release

San Rafael, CA – On Wednesday, April 24, the Marin County Probation Department conducted a multiagency operation that targeted 30 offenders who either had an active bench warrant or were on active supervision or pretrial. 

The countywide operation, led by the Probation Department, was conducted with the assistance of the Marin County District Attorney's Office, the Marin County Sheriff's Department, the Novato Police Department, and the California State Parks Department. 

The operation was carried out to ensure community safety by exercising due diligence to resolve outstanding warrants and to ensure compliance under Probation’s supervision. Teams led by Probation officers were dispersed to specific areas throughout the county, where they served warrants and conducted compliance checks and searches. 

During the operation, 30 home visits were conducted, and one subject was arrested for an outstanding warrant and several others were found in violation for being under the influence of marijuana, alcohol, possession of paraphernalia, possession of replica firearms, and possession of gang attire. Those in violation have court sanctions pending.

This was one of several operations in which Probation collaborates with local law enforcement to conduct routine unannounced visits and searches. The operations are conducted to apply a balanced approach of enforcing court mandates and offering evidence-based practices that support rehabilitation. 

The Probation Department is committed to focusing resources on both community safety and the rehabilitation of those who enter the criminal justice system.
