On Jan. 25, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors authorized the Sheriff's Department to initiate a property search to establish a new sheriff station.

Under the proposal, the sheriff's department will coordinate with county officials to locate a 19,000-square-foot space for the new station that would accommodate up to 70 sheriff personnel.

The facility would serve over 60,000 residents in unincorporated Corona, Woodcrest, Lake Hills, and Temescal Valley. Supervisor Kevin Jefferies told City News Service that the location has been a long time coming and that a facility is badly needed in the area.

Jonathan Linden was a reporter at 91.9 KVCR in San Bernardino, California. He joined KVCR in July 2021 and served with the station till October 2022.
