September Crime Statistics from the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office

On Thursday, the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office released statistics detailing the agency’s monthly patrol operations, calls to the 911 dispatch center and the inmate population at the Lassen County Jail during the month of September.

“Our deputies and dispatchers work hard every day to serve our community,” explains LCSO Lieutenant David Woginrich.

“On top of answering 911 and non-emergency phone calls, dispatchers also have to relay information to patrol deputies and officers over the radio, most times all while the caller is talking (sometimes screaming and yelling) to them on the phone.”

According to Woginrich, patrol staff must fully rely on the information provided to them by the dispatcher and incorrect or unclear information could put patrol deputies and officers in danger. This is incredibly stressful for the dispatchers.

“We greatly appreciate the effort and dedication of our deputies and dispatchers. Please join us in recognizing and thanking our deputies and dispatchers for all of their hard work!”

Lassen County Jail
In September the jail had an average daily population of 117 with 78 of those being felony inmates and 13 misdemeanor inmates. There were 93 bookings total during the month.
