    Is Oxnard Police only issuing crime press releases involving murder now?

    In June I counted 14 press releases reporting crimes in Oxnard, the latest on 6/24.

    None of the 14 involved a murder. But since then there have been no press release from Oxnard until the 7/2 murder.

    When is the city of Oxnard going to clean up this area? There is constant crime there. Buy these buildings from the owners and tear them down. Oxnard is prime beach community and the city has been taken over by criminals, vagrants and gangsters. Why not fix it up and make it another Huntington Beach, that would pull in so much money!

      They could do the same thing that they did before. At one time, crime was completely out of control on Aleric Street. The city eliminated all crime on that street. The renamed it to Cuesta del Mar.
