06/17/09: Members of the Long Beach Police Department Gang Enforcement work with Los Angeles County Probation and California Department of Parole to conduct an early morning sweep on parolee Noel Aguilar at his North Long Beach home on Wednesday, June 17, 2009. In response to a spike in violent crime this year, and in anticipation of the usual spike our area -- and other areas -- see every summer. Long Beach isn't the only city working with Parole and Probation; Lakewood and Compton conducted similar sweeps as well. But Long Beach's operation is amongst the largest, with multiple teams hitting some 60 locations through the city.
