CHP expands crime-fighting duties in Sacramento

From Sandy Louey:

The Sacramento Police Department is working with the California Highway Patrol to lower the gang activity, robbery and burglary rates in the city.

Starting today, 16 CHP officers and two CHP sergeants have been assigned to help the police department's Problem Oriented Police Officers and detectives to deter crimes in south Sacramento, according to a news release.

The partnership is expected to be a long-term effort where CHP officers will be working hand-in-hand with Sacramento police throughout the city, police said.

Areas of deployment will depend on current crime trends or crime series that have been identified, police said.
