STOCKTON, CA - Sheriff's deputies, police officers and probation officials from around San Joaquin County hit the streets Thursday for the second day of Operation Safe Holidays.

Much of the activity was in Stockton, with officers pulling over any vehicle with a violation.  Arrests followed if drugs were found, or if people in the car had arrest warrants.

At one location in east Stockton, a pit bull was shot to death after it attacked a police dog.  Three people associated with that home were taken into custody.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department emphasizes holiday enforcement because crime tends to rise at this time of year.

Wednesday, with teams checking on people on parole and probation, there were 31 arrests.

Thursday's arrest totals weren't likely to be available until much later in the day.
