General Law Enforcement

In addition to court security, perimeter security and warrant service, deputies of the Shasta County Marshal's Office also perform general law enforcement duties. While deputies do not respond as primary officers to calls for service outside of the courthouse, they do respond as back up to other law enforcement agencies on an as-needed basis. Deputies also enforce traffic laws by issuing citations to motorists for violations of the California Vehicle Code, arresting impaired drivers and serving as a deterrent to reckless driving by their visibility on the roadways. As California peace officers with statewide authority, deputies also make arrests for violations of law committed in their presence.
