Sheriff will not criminalize people who are trying to preserve their mental, physical, and financial health

–The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday released a statement saying it will not be responding to calls based solely on non-compliance with California’s strict new Regional Stay at Home Order. Sheriff’s deputies will continue to focus on “significant criminal matters.” The county sheriff posted the following to social media:

In response to the governor’s regional stay at home order, the sheriff’s office will continue its mission to focus on significant criminal matters. Deputies will not be making traffic/pedestrian stops to determine the comings and goings of citizens during this time. We will not be responding to calls for service based solely on non-compliance with the new order.

The sheriff’s office will take appropriate action on large gatherings which flaunt the order. Additionally, the sheriff’s office will continue its protocols, like we have with the business community, to ask for voluntary compliance when dealing with these matters and to protect people that are most vulnerable. The sheriff’s office will not jeopardize the safety of this community and criminalize people who are trying to preserve their mental, physical, and financial health.
