Local law enforcement ready for busy holiday weekend

It’s a busy holiday weekend from one end of Plumas County to the other and local law enforcement is gearing up to respond where needed.

“We are all hands on deck,” said Plumas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Chandler Peay. He said deputies are being dispatched throughout the county in the event areas, as well as the rural areas.

Plumas County Sheriff Todd John said that his office is prepared for the busy weekend.

Additionally, the boat patrol will be conducting Operation Dry Water to bring heightened awareness to the dangers of boating under the influence. The enforcement weekend will be taking place in Plumas and nationwide July 2 – 4. Alcohol use continues to be the leading known contributor in fatal boating incidents.

Likewise the California Highway Patrol is entering a maximum enforcement period, for what is described as the “busiest time of the year.” Officers will be patrolling throughout the county, and the Quincy area office will be assisting with traffic control during the fireworks celebration in Graeagle on Saturday night, July 2.
