City of Residence







On Saturday 06/07/2014, members of the Fillmore Police Department, Ventura County Sheriff's Office, and Ventura County Probation Agency conducted multiple searches of residences of parolees and probationers in the City of Fillmore and the surrounding unincorporated areas.  This operation was funded by a California state grant for supervising post-release and serious habitual offenders, due to state prison Realignment Act (AB 109).


Sheriff's Deputies visited forty-two Fillmore area locations Saturday morning and conducted probation / parole searches, and served multiple felony arrest warrants.  Of the probationers and parolees contacted, nineteen subjects were arrested for a variety of charges, ranging from narcotics violations to felon in possession of ammunition charges.  Six individuals were booked into the Ventura County Jail, while the remaining were cited and released. 


Similar operations have been conducted in Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Ojai, and the Ventura/Oxnard unincorporated areas in recent months.
