DISARM Program Gets 167 Probation Violators Off Streets In April

mikeantonovichDuring the month of April, D.I.S.A.R.M. Officers confiscated 30 guns and 11 rifles, over $24 million in illegal drugs and drug money, and arrested 167 probationers during 1,856 unannounced searches of residences, persons, vehicles, and businesses, announced Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

The searches were conducted through the Probation Department’s D.I.S.A.R.M. (Developing Increased Safety through Arms Reduction Management) program, initiated by Supervisor Antonovich following the tragic August 1999 shootings at the North Valley Jewish Community Center and the murder of a postal worker by Buford Furrow, an armed felon on probation from Washington State.

The D.I.S.A.R.M. program entails pairing Deputy Probation Officers with local law enforcement personnel to perform unannounced searches of probationers and their homes, as a condition of probation, and targets the confiscation of guns, drugs, and other contraband.

Since its implementation in February of 2000, the D.I.S.A.R.M. program has seized over 7,400 weapons and more than $243 million in illegal drugs and drug money, and resulted in 14,887 arrests.  Nearly 10 percent of probationers searched in this program have been found to be out of compliance with their terms of probation.
