Chad Herman has been a sergeant for many years and was stationed in several locations. At the end of June 2011 he received a permanent position and became the sergeant in charge of the Portola Substation. He oversees four deputies and covers calls and shifts and makes calls.
Herman was born and raised in this town and has always viewed it as a Norman Rockwell town. He says many people feel the same way but there are a few people who want to tarnish it. He says it will take the entire community to work together to stand up against those who are committing crimes and bring them to justice in order to bring Portola back to its pristine condition.
Herman is a Rotary member and says he encouraging all of his employees to get involved in some organization in the community so that they are working proactively with the community. He wants the community to see the officers as members of the community as well.
He says that they have been working on getting coverage at the substation and soon the substation will have a volunteer person handling questions, calls and paperwork so that someone from an outlying area doesn’t have to drive all the way to Quincy to turn in paperwork.
The Plumas County Sheriff’s Employees Association Children’s Fund has raised $4,000 for the Barclay family, whose members were burned in a fire Dec. 21, 2011, and $1,000 to go to the Shriner’s hospital where three of the children have received treatment for their burns.
