San Andreas, CA — By unanimous vote of the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors, Mokelumne Hill will receive a new sheriff´s substation.
The opening of an office on Center Street is aimed at helping deter crime for what has been an increase in activity around the community´s cemeteries.
The item was approved after supervisors amended the motion to give the County Administrative Officer the authority to sign the lease agreement as proposed by the owner of the building.
Sheriff Dennis Downum says the office will help apprehend offenders and make it easier to develop community policing programs.
