Probably because some guys would rather live in the Corona/Riverside area then the desert. And they've got some miserable areas you could be assigned to.
A old friend started at RSO. His first assignment right out of the academy was as a resident deputy at a hell hole called "Eagle Mountain". It was a "Kaiser Steel" iron mining town. About the only people they could get to work the mine out there were ex-cons. They even had their own Hell's Angel chapter in the town.
But that was in the 70's, and RCo has grown into a lot of nice communities since then.
