PARADISE, Calif. -- Paradise police are patrolling a new normal. On Thursday, patrols looked for looters and bodies left in ashes.

Paradise police have been patrolling the streets non-stop.

The department has 8 officers working the day shift and 8 officers working the night shift.

Sergeant Robert Pickering said police arrested several people who were not supposed to be in the area.

"They were arrested on unrelated charges to looting. We couldn't prove they had stolen anything or were intending to steal but we had people as far away as Redding who weren't supposed to be here and booked in the Butte County Jail," said Sergeant Pickering.

Sergeant Pickering wanted to emphasize that Paradise Police understand residents want to come back and check on their homes.
He asked residents to continue to be patient and that the department is working on this as best as they can.

A seasonably hot beginning to the workweek for northern California, and hotter weather is in the short term forecast, with very little relief in the long term.
