FRESNO – Tuesday, the Fresno County Board of Supervisors approved the renewal of the public safety contract with the City of Fresno Police Department for the housing of Fresno’s prolific car thieves.
The original agreement began November 1 and was set to end June 30, 2014. It will now extend through June 30, 2015. This agreement sets aside five beds for the Fresno Police Department and guarantees that designated arrestees will be held in the jail and not released due to overcrowding. These car thieves have been tied to even more serious crimes such as murder.
