The presence of four Plumas County sheriff’s deputies at Wednesday’s school board meeting in Greenville didn’t go unnoticed.
In response to public queries, Sheriff Greg Hagwood said the deputies attended the meeting at the request of the Plumas Unified School District administration.
“It might have appeared like an unusually large presence (of deputies),” Hagwood said. “Normally we would have sent two or three deputies. But we had double coverage on Wednesday, and one of the officers was a trainee.”
Hagwood said the district asked for the officers’ presence because of the tense nature of recent board discussions regarding school closures.
The sheriff said he was pleased to report there were no problems or incidents at the meeting.
A call to Superintendent Glenn Harris seeking comment had not been returned as of Thursday morning.
