La Verne Residents Protest Housing of Violent Offenders at Probation Camp

Residents in La Verne spent Saturday afternoon protesting a plan to house violent offenders at a nearby probation camp. Camp Paige and Afflerbaugh in the northern part of the city currently houses juveniles convicted of crimes.

A new plan would bring violent offenders such as those convicted of murders and rapes to the camp. Residents are concerned about their neighborhoods should these more violent offenders be housed there. They worry about the possibility of escapees along with associates that may come to visit the offenders. They are asking for the county to reconsider the plan.
