The Placer County Sheriff’s Office Fleet Services Division in Auburn is in charge of all Sheriff’s Office vehicles. The following locations are all serviced out of our Auburn headquarters:
Auburn Justice Center
North Lake Tahoe Substation
South Placer Jail
South Placer Substation
With one supervisor and a full time staff of three, Fleet Services maintain over 300 pieces of equipment. They are tasked with outfitting over 30 new vehicles with emergency equipment every year. Vehicles are delivered from the factory virtually stock. Fleet outfits them completely for patrol and emergency use. From push bumpers to striping, nothing leaves the department until it is ready for patrol.
Over 3,000 maintenance and repair work orders are generated each year out of this office. The fleet services division is also tasked with maintaining the in-car camera system hardware in each vehicle as well as maintaining the telecommunications equipment in each vehicle.
