The South Placer Substation is located in Loomis and covers the area from Newcastle to Sacramento County line. The communities served by the substation include Newcastle, Ophir, Penryn, Loomis, Granite Bay, the West Roseville/Dry Creek area, Sunset Estates, Rural Lincoln and Sheridan.
The South Placer Substation is commanded by a Sheriff’s Office captain. Staffing of the substation includes 33 patrol positions, 3 detectives, 4 patrol sergeants, 1 Community Services/School Safety sergeant, 4 D.A.R.E. officers, 4 schools resource officers, 1 community services officer, several reserve deputies, numerous volunteers and other professional staff.
The Town of Loomis contracts for its law enforcement services with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Some of the advantages of contracting law enforcement services include:
They do not have to duplicate a dispatch center.
The resources of the entire Sheriff’s Office are brought to bear on any major event or crime.
The substation and the entire staff for the south county area are housed in Loomis. A greater law enforcement presence is provided as patrol units for other areas serviced by the substation travel through Loomis.
Community Services are based in Loomis. This allows for greater attention and access to the department volunteers.
The Air Support Unit includes the Town of Loomis in their routine patrol operations at no extra cost to the Township.
In addition to the listed services, there is also a full-time traffic enforcement officer for the Town of Loomis. The Loomis patrol car and the traffic car are equipped with radar and lidar to assist in the enforcement of traffic laws. A Critical Accident Response team is based in Loomis and responds to any major or fatality vehicle accident to professionally investigate and prepare a report. Participation in this unit entails a higher level of training and dedication on the part of the deputies in order to attain the level of expertise necessary to investigate major traffic accidents.<
A collateral assignment of some deputies is to work bike patrol. The bicycles are used for special events and during the summer months to patrol concentrated population and commercial areas. They are a highly visible presence to local merchants and neighbors but they often have the advantage of silently and unexpectedly approaching suspects.
In addition the office volunteers, The Sheriff’s Team of Active Residents or S.T.A.R.S., is based at the South Placer Substation. The S.T.A.R.S. are used throughout the county to provide a myriad of additional services to residents and communities. S.T.A.R.S. volunteers conduct vacation checks of homes and abandoned vehicle abatement, work traffic details at parades, festivals and other events, supervise inmate worker car wash crews for county vehicles, and provide other assistance when and where they are needed most.
