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.
