The Penal Code and only be enforced by law enforcement or the District Attorney. An individual cannot enforce them.

A private citizen can go through the civil courts to get an injunction and use the penal code as justification for the injunction but it really can be done without the code, the code just makes it easier to define the specific behavior to be enjoined.
