Riverside County Sheriff-Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Kamal Kabbara

File# Multiple

Details:

On Sunday, February 18, 2024, and Monday, February 19, 2024, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., deputies assigned to the Perris Sheriff’s Station Special Enforcement Team and the Traffic Team conducted Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Enforcement Operations within the city of Perris. During the operations, deputies utilized the Sheriff’s Department OHV and contacted several riders’ off-roading in the hills. During their contacts, deputies educated the riders about illegal off-roading within the city of Perris and provided them with information for areas designated for legal use of OHV. Additionally, deputies stopped sixteen OHVs riding illegally on public streets and towed them for violating the California Vehicle Code. Deputies also issued twenty-one citations, arrested one person for reckless driving, one person for outstanding felony warrants, and one person for being under the influence of narcotics.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office and the city of Perris are dedicated to the safety of everyone, including community members driving on/off the streets. Additionally, we would like to remind our community members that operating an OHV on a public street is not only illegal, but it can also be dangerous. Please visit the United States Department of Forestry (USDA) visitor's map or the California Off Highway Vehicle Recreation website for legal off-road locations.

For additional information regarding OHV, please contact the Perris Sheriff’s Station at 951–210–1000.

For media inquiries regarding this incident please contact the Media Information Bureau.
