  • Deputy shooting fallout: The children of a Portola man who was shot and killed at Eastern Plumas Health Care last year are seeking millions of dollars in damages.
  • The trout must go: The state is planning to pull all of the brook trout out of a Plumas County lake in order to protect the yellow-legged frog.
  • Inspections delayed: Cal Fire was scheduled to begin property inspections this week, but decided to wait until the public could better understand what the inspectors are doing.

Sheriff and CHP seek support for joint venture

The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office needs a new correctional facility and administrative space and the California Highway Patrol is looking for property to build a new office.

“It seemed redundant to pursue parallel projects,” Sheriff Greg Hagwood told the Board of Supervisors on Jan. 21.

Hagwood and CHP Lt. Joe Edwards asked the supervisors to endorse a letter to Gov. Jerry Brown supporting a joint venture.

“The concept of developing one facility for both agencies is very much in keeping with emerging trends that relate to county/state collaboration in the public safety arena and would serve as a tangible example of efficiency, cooperation and commitment to our shared responsibility to our citizens,” the letter read in part.

“This is an exciting prospect,” Edwards said, noting that it accomplishes two goals — improving service and saving money.
