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.

“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.
