There is growing concern among residents who live near Southwest
Detention Center in French Valley about the nighttime release of inmates
who may not have immediate transportation arrangements, it was reported Saturday.
Three neighbors gathered 527 signatures on a petition
regarding the matter and have submitted it to Riverside County officials, The
Inmates can be released from the jail 24 hours a day, while public
transportation ends at 7:30 p.m on weekdays and does not run on
weekends, the newspaper reported.
Some residents are concerned that those without rides are instead loitering near local neighborhoods and businesses.
