Sheriff withdraws restructuring plan

There will be no layoffs, demotions or restructuring in the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Greg Hagwood and Supervisor Jon Kennedy delivered the news in a joint announcement at the Feather Publishing offices in Quincy on Thursday.

The announcement followed a meeting that included Hagwood, Kennedy, Supervisor Terry Swofford and District Attorney David Hollister.

Hagwood said he was rescinding the restructuring plan that was approved by the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

 “I’m very relieved. Very pleased,” Hagwood said. “And I think the citizens of Plumas County can enjoy a renewed sense of confidence based on the events of (Thursday) morning, where Mr. Kennedy Mr. Swofford, Mr. Hollister and I came together and set aside the events of the last two months — and particularly this last week — and focused on genuinely working together. When it comes to public safety, our priorities are the same.”

 Hagwood said the sheriff’s office and the two supervisors at the meeting agreed to concessions that would keep the sheriff’s current department structure intact.

 Thursday’s agreement still requires approval by the Board of Supervisors. But Kennedy said the approval should be a formality.

 “I feel that the board will completely agree with what Terry Swofford and I discussed with the sheriff,” Kennedy said. “The board has already indicated clearly that they have a strong commitment to public safety.”

 A complete report of this story will be featured in Oct. 17 editions of Feather Publishing newspapers.
