Valley Springs, CA — Calaveras County resident will soon have a new substation to protect and serve them. Wednesday, January 16th is the grand opening of the new Valley Springs Sheriff’s substation in the MarVal shopping complex office off of Highway 12 and 26.
The substation will officially open at 1 p.m. tomorrow with a public meet and greet with Sheriff Gary Kuntz and new Valley Springs’ resident deputy Corporal Rudi Leon, who will use the substation as his office.
Sgt. Chris Hewitt says, “We had a substation in Valley Springs that was shutdown years ago due to budget constraints. Now we are opening one back up as part of a pledge the Sheriff made in his commitment towards community oriented policing.” Hewitt adds, “Valley Springs is one of our busiest areas in the county. We need a substation there so we can be more open and available to the public, give them a more convenient place to make reports or contact the Sheriff’s Department for any reason.”
Sheriff’s Officials say the substation will be manned by members of their volunteer unit, and will be used by sheriff’s deputies in their day-to-day operations.
