In one room, posted on a wall is a newspaper article with a picture.
Nate Scarrano, a supervising San Bernardino County probation officer, walks up to the article and recognizes the man in the picture.
"This guy had my picture up in his house," recalled Scarrano, then a SMASH Gang team member.
Scarrano and all law-enforcement agents are always reminded to be vigilant when it come to safety, but the recent shooting of a Chino corrections officer at a Colton gas station has been a sobering reminder to many that danger can be lurking around any and every corner.
