Humboldt County Sheriff Michael Downey announced today his office and the City of Blue Lake have signed a three-year law enforcement contract providing ongoing law enforcement services to the city’s residents.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s office has provided law enforcement to the city of roughly 1,135 residents since 2008 after the local police department was disbanded. The new contract provides the same level of law enforcement to the city with two assigned deputies. The City of Blue Lake is approximately .6 square miles in size.
The Sheriff’s Office continued providing law enforcement services to the city during contract negotiations and at no time was the city left unprotected.
