This article was written by the Lake Elsinore Police Department (per byline). Does the LEPD not know that the Cois Byrd facility is NOT in Murrieta (despite the misleading USPO addressing)... It is actually in an area historically and currently known as French Valley, an unincorporated part of Riverside County, within the official Sphere of Influence of Temecula, all of which is patrolled and protected by the Temecula division of RCSD. Copying the USPS mis-addressing is a public disservice.
