Plans for a new parole office in La Mesa not sitting well with residents

San Diego (KUSI) – Plans for a new parole office in La Mesa is not sitting well with the residents who live there.

The state of California wants to lease the building for the purpose of a parole office for people who just got out of state prison. Parole is for is not probation and is for those who committed serious crimes such as severe violence, sexual assault, and organized gang activity.

Residents against the proposed lease argue Grossmont High is just one of four high schools nearby with thousands of kids attending. People walking to the facility would have to walk through residential streets to get to the parole office and with the lack of access to public transportation, sidewalks, and parking, there’s no room to expand.
