Parolee outreach planned in Walnut

WALNUT — A Los Angeles County sheriff’s lieutenant is inviting area parolees and their families to join him at the Walnut Senior Center Wednesday for free hot dogs, chips and drinks at an outreach.
The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the center, 21215 La Puente Road, said coordinator Lt. John Saleeby.
The lieutenant has already hosted several other “hot dog outreaches” for parolees in the area. The events are a Christian-based outreach program, often featuring testimonials from ex-convicts, aimed at helping local parolees avoid getting back into trouble with the law.
“It’s the holiday season. It’s time for people to make a new start,” Saleeby said.
Saleeby emphasized that the event is not a sting or a parole compliance check, but simply an effort to provide parolees with a positive support network.
Guests are encouraged to bring their families along.
For more information, contact Saleeby at the sheriff’s Walnut-Diamond Bar Station at 626-913-1715.
