    That picture is being taken across the street from the house I lived in for 5 years (until Nov 2014) – those two sheds on the left were in my then, back yard! Who the heck shot whom???

    The County Board of Supervisors and the City of Santa Clarita need to the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station needs more Jailers. More Custody Assistant position items are long over due. How long are the safety issues going to be ignored and current Jailers exploited? Is it going to take another employee injury/stress leave or inmate death??? Custody Assistants also save money by doing the job Deputies used to. Quiet no more for the safety and well being of important people!!!
