Tehama Co. DA releases public safety survey in response to increase in crime

Apr 1, 2014 7:35 PM

Tehama County District Attorney Gregg Cohen said he has been hearing about increased crime in Tehama County, and therefore has released a public safety survey.

Over the past two weeks, the Tehama County Sheriff's Office said there have been 20 thefts from inside cars.

DA Cohen said AB-109 has hurt Tehama County, seeing both an increase in crime and severity.

Referring to AB-109 in a press release he said, "Simply put... we're out of prison and jail space. We need to discuss other options for repeat offenders."

Also in the past couple of weeks, Red Bluff Gold Exchange's owner said she’s been stolen from twice.

That’s also an increase for her shop.

And that’s why she supports Cohen’s announcement that there will be a public safety survey in the county.

She recently listened to him speak at “Good Morning Red Bluff.”

“I was very pleased,” Jessie Woods said. “At least this is a start. Let's hold hands. It takes a tribe to be able to do this.”
