ONTERIO SWEEP TARGETS STREET.

ONTARIO - Several square blocks in the west end of the city have been crammed with abandoned vehicles, covered in trash and graffiti, and are known for substandard dwellings and drug activity.

On Thursday, up to 50 officers - representing Ontario police, code enforcement, public works, towing, parole and probation - descended on the 200 block of North Begonia Avenue and nearby alleys.

"There's good people in this neighborhood," said Sgt. David McBride. "They may just be apartment renters, but they still have a stake in the

Several residents came out to watch the cars, which were given a 48-hour notice, be towed away from litter-strewn front yards.

Trucks hauled abandoned couches left by foul-smelling, overflowing trash receptacles. Animal control officers came on the scene to round up wandering dogs.

"It's just dirty all around," said resident Rossel Antunez. "There's trash. ... The flies get in the house."

He gestured to the food wrappers near his feet.

"People eat and just throw it on the ground," Antunez said. "I think some are just lazy. ..."

McBride said that while the 1,441 calls for service in the area in the past 12 months is not an astronomical figure, the point is to try to nip the blight in the bud.
The operation early Thursday was the first example of what was possible with extra manpower through the Ontario Police Department's new Area Command Program.

By rearranging the schedules of 47 officers so they work three 12<MD+,%30,%55,%70>1/<MD-,%0,%55,%70>2-hour shifts, the department has extra resources to redeploy to trouble spots during peak periods, McBride said.

And the city is divided in three parts, with a lieutenant as community liaison and contact for residents and business owners in the west, east and south.

"It's greater accountability for the department to the community," said Lt. Brad Kaylor. "It allows us to have an area of responsibility we can monitor more closely and be accessible to people in the neighborhood."

Carolina Comez, a resident for 18 years, stood with neighbors in an alley and noted the work approvingly.

"Right here, no good," Comez said. "I'm looking to move next month. There's a lot of drugs. A lot of people do the drugs right here at night."

McBride pointed out several laundry rooms among the units covered in graffiti.

Until last week, a person was living between the washer and dryer in one of them, and several people are known to reside in some of the garages, McBride said.

Code enforcement officers would be in touch with the owner of a balcony upon which a woman and five children were standing casually Thursday.

Heavy water damage underneath and eroded posts holding it up foretold of the balcony's pending collapse.

Nearby, parole agents and police officers entered the house of a parolee for a compliance check.

He wasn't home, but his girlfriend was in the bathroom.

Gang tags were evident on several items in the home.

After a brief search, officers discovered a loaded handgun hidden in the bathroom. An even more thorough search revealed a second gun, and two arrests followed.

THIS IS THE SAME SPOT I TOOK THOSE ONTERIO PROJECT PICS.
