Default El Dorado County Sheriff Strips Forest Service Of State-Law Enforcement Power

“I take the service that we provide to the citizens of El Dorado County and the visitors to El Dorado County very seriously, and the style and manner of service we provide,” D’Agostini said. “The U.S. Forest Service, after many attempts and given many opportunities, has failed to meet that standard.”

The sheriff won’t give specifics, but he says he’s concerned about the number of complaints his department’s received against the federal officers.
The Rangers would sit back on remote trails and fill out ticket books with petty vehicle code violations on 4x4's on the Rubicon trail. It eventually escalated to arresting people and confiscating legally owned property.

Interesting reading on pirate's land use. Seems a few LEO's have let the power go to their head. (Kenny Marcus)

I know for a fact he gave them more than a few chances - but the FS LEO boss is adamant about enforcing CVC codes...I bet there were more CVC violations written on Federal Lands in the County than the Deputy's themselves wrote tickets for.

And again, it's all about Karen and her crew complaining about OHV users. And, if the County Sheriff grants you the power to enforce - you should do it his way.
