"Our agency had lost a mea- sure of credibility and trust within county government and within the communities," Hagwood said, candidly. In an attempt to improve the department's image, Hagwood turned to the public for help. His idea was the formation of the Plumas County Sher- iff's Office Citizens Liaison Committee. The committee, formed last year for the first time, was a group of residents sele&ed by the Board of Supervisors from all five districts. , Their job was to experience a behind-the-scenes look at the sheriff's office in action. They were encouraged to ask questions, make suggestions, and report their findings to the Board of Supervisors. Hagwood said the program was a huge success. It turned out so well that the sheriff's office is doing it again. On June 28, the new version of the committee met with Hagwood to get an outline of the program. "We are not here for you to give a rubber stamp of the sheriff's department," Hag- wood told the 11 county resi- dents who attended the meet- ing. "I want you to be critical. I want you to ask questions. "There's nothing I like bet- ter than someone who has a better idea." Hagwood said the commit- tee's role is a "conduit to re- lay accurate information good, bad or otherwise about what the sheriff's de- partment is doing." And that means "every- thing." Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood speaks to members of the county's Citizens Liaison Committee at the sheriff's office June 28 in Quincy. Photoby Dan McDonald "We are not here for you to give a rubber stamp of the sheriff's department. "I want you to be critical I want you to ask questions." Greg Hagwood, Plumas County Sheriff "During the course of the year, you are going to see everything that we do," Hagwood told the commit- tee. "You are going to see dispatch, patrol, correc- tions, search and rescue, SWAT, boat patrol, civil clerks , administration, training, hiring, back- ground investigations, dis- cipline. You will have a pre- sentation from the employ- ees association. "You are going to see our budget .... Money in and money out. How and why it is spent." For their part, the commit- tee members had to agree to a one-year commitment. They are responsible for collectively compiling quar- terly reports for the Board of Supervisors. After one year, they will prepare a written report for the board outlining their ob- servations and recommenda- tions. Hagwood said he wants the committee's report to be thorough.
