Contact: Lt. Steve Knight
Case No#: n/a
Released By: Lt. Steve Knight

Location: Blue Lake

Sheriff Michael Downey is pleased to announce that the City of Blue Lake has signed a law enforcement contract with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The three year contract will provide ongoing law enforcement services to the residents of the City of Blue Lake. The Sheriff’s Office continued providing law enforcement services to the City of Blue Lake while contract negotiations were underway, and at no time was the city left without law enforcement protection.

The new contract will provide the same level of law enforcement to the City of Blue Lake with two deputies being assigned to the City of Blue Lake. Law Enforcement will be provided by sheriff’s deputies not assigned to the city, when the two assigned deputies are not on duty. The new contract will be for a period of three years.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office has provided law enforcement to the City of Blue Lake since 2008 after its police department was disbanded.

Mike Downey
