ISLETON, CA - For the second time this year, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department took over the duties of the Isleton Police Department.
Deputy Jason Ramos said the interim City Manager Dan Hinrichs called the sheriff's department and asked if it could take over law enforcement service to Isleton residents.
Hinrichs said the Isleton Police Department is no longer functioning.
Isleton has three police officers and one chief at the department. On Wednesday Hinrichs put Chief Steve Adams on administrative leave; on Thursday, a police officer was put on leave after being in an officer involved shooting. Adams added the two others are not allowed to work because they do not have proper training certification.

Adams also said there is an internal investigation into an officer who is accused of having sex in his patrol car. He did not say who the officer is.

Sheriff Scott Jones authorized the department to "immediately assume law enforcement response for "priority one" calls in the city of Isleton," Ramos said.
Deputies will respond to calls in Isleton if there is "a life-threatening or critical emergency only." Ramos said there will be very long response times from the department to Isleton and they will not be patrolling the Isleton area.
Ramos said it is unclear how long this arrangement will be in effect.
For a week in January, the sheriff's department was doing patrols for the Isleton Police Department, while the police department resolved their issue with worker's comp insurance.
