Lake County Sheriff's Office
Regarding the LCSO application for a state grant to patrol OHMV activity in Lake County. As an off-road enthusiast I am aware that the majority of off roaders are legal law abiding citizens safely enjoying our sport.
With the dangerously rising gang and crime activity in Lake County we prefer that our LCSO resources be concentrated on such activity instead of diverted to off-roading where crime is rare. Patrolling off road areas would amount to a waste of tax-payer funds from a near bankrupt state while Lake county crime catapults.
Gangs, vandalism, recent robberies and murders should be the primary focus of LCSO over street patrol and off-roading should be left alone as an individual freedom. [Craig Stankiewicz - 3/6/13]
Please find BRC’s support letter for your OHV grant. Keep up the good work. [Don Amador - 4/1/13]
