Volunteer SCPD Homeless-Harasser Deb Elston's Ticketing Record

For those seeking more information regarding the questionable ticketing behavior of the SCPD towards those whose only home is their vehicle, check out the record of Santa Cruz Neighbors organizer and Nextdoor boss Deborah Elston below.

This info is a month old and only covers a year. Updates and a longer history can be obtained by e-mail Public Records demands of the SCPD. Please advise me if your requests are turned down or ignored.

Also if you get a redacted version (as this posted one is), you can demand to have them provide one that's unredacted or, if necessary, insist that they make the records available for inspection at the police department. They may attempt to get you to "swear under penalty of perjury" you are using the information for an educational, reportorial, etc. purpose.

Knowledge is power. The police maintain a lot of their power because it's done under cover of darkness and secrecy.

She is also #501 of a rather lengthy roster of "volunteer" cops. that list is also posted here.

We have an unredacted version but they left out the civic codes numbers. I would like to know when you view them. I need to get the codes to supply the US DOJ fair housing enforcement division. Plus US senate judiciary committee and big media national and international.

It is time to clean out the corrupt, hater, vigilante out off government, law enforcement and city.

No more domestic terrorist hate crimes on the homeless!

I don't agree that you should get special dispensation for being homeless. If you don't register your vehicle, you get a ticket like anyone else. If you park it illegally, you get a ticket like anyone else.

What is your record even supposed to show? That she wrote a total of 26 tickets over the course of 11 months? 20 of which are for $10? No data showing that it's focused on car dwellers.

Not very compelling.
