Sheriff takes over town's law-enforcement duties - Sacramento Bee

Beginning today, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department will provide contractual law enforcement services to the city of Isleton.

The level of service will be comparable to that provided to the unincorporated areas of Sacramento County, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.

Deputies will not be dedicated solely to the city. The time they spend in the city will approximately equal the time they spend in other areas served by the department's South Bureau, officials said.

In addition, the sheriff's Communications Bureau will assume all dispatch responsibilities for emergency calls and other service requests.

The Sheriff's Department has been handling emergency calls in the Delta city since early May when the interim city manager announced that the police force was no longer functioning. Deputies also provided emergency service to Isleton for a week in January when the city's workers' compensation coverage lapsed.

The contract between the city and the Sheriff's Department runs through June 30, 2013.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

• Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
