Re: Agenda Item 6a

Discussion and Possible Action Including Direction to Staff Regarding Analyzing the Need for Increased Law Enforcement Support to Address Organized Crime (Sponsors: Supervisors Haschak and Williams)

 

Honorable Supervisors,

 

Mendocino Cannabis Alliance supports the agenda item. We appreciate the Sheriff’s focus on egregious acts of environmental degradation and violence. In the Sheriff’s last report to MCA regarding year-to-date law enforcement actions involving cannabis, he indicated that not one of the targets or actions involved a cultivation site in good standing with the Mendocino County Cannabis Program.

 

We request that the Sheriff and County Staff be asked to track data for crimes related to cannabis and to clearly specify whether they involved persons in good standing with the Cannabis Program or not.

 

Thank you for your consideration.
