Law enforcement fair draws a crowd to Graeagle

The first of what is planned to be an annual event — the Plumas County Law Enforcement Fair — held Sunday, Aug. 28 proved to be quite a success.

“We could not be happier with how the event came together and are even more impressed with the outstanding attendance by the community we serve,” said Chandler Peay, spokesman for the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office. He estimated that more than 200 people turned out for the event, including many families with their children.

Modeled after Modoc County’s law enforcement fair, Officer Seth Preston of the California Highway Patrol and Peay began planning Plumas County’s version earlier this year. According to Peay, the event quickly gained momentum amid support from local law enforcement and the community.

The CHP and the sheriff’s office were joined by USFS Law Enforcement, California Fish and Wildlife, California State Parks, and Cal OES Law Enforcement.

“This event was a perfect time for the community to come out, meet their local law enforcement, and become informed and educated about the services each agency provides to keep Plumas County residents and visitors safe,” Peay said.

Peay acknowledged the following for contributing to the event’s success: Plumas County Sheriff’s Employee’s Association, Danny Horton Music, Sierra Pacific Industries, Gott Powersports, Graeagle Land and Water, Rotary Club of Portola, Summit Funding of Quincy and Amber Sells the Sierras – Real Estate.

“We plan to host this event annually now and are looking forward to an even better event next year around this same time,” Peay said.
