El Dorado Sheriff boosts enforcement detail

Changes in deputy shifts have allowed the El Dorado Sheriff's Office to add to its Special Enforcement Detail, which handles duties that deputies can't because of call demand.

"They run from call to call," said Lt. Bryan Golmitz, speaking of the regular shift deputies.

The enforcement detail will come into an area, "when we start to see a trend," Golmitz said.

For example, handling ongoing calls would not allow deputies to stake out an auto burglary hot spot, he said.

At the same time, those sorts of property crimes might be deemed lower priority for detectives.

The enforcement detail handles things that are kind of "between the cracks," Golmitz said.

The new staffing doubles the Special Enforcement Detail to two teams of two deputies, who will rotate in and out every six months, one team at a time.

The detail will change sergeants annually.

The change is due to the Office moving from three shifts per day to two shifts.

"With the new, robust shift sizes, coupled with the newly structured SED team, the citizens of El Dorado County are getting more service with a reduction in cost," Sheriff John D'Agostini said, in a prepared statement issued by his office.
