$21,800 raised in Incline for Sheriff Chuck Allen
June 24, 2015
More than 60 locals gathered on June 18 at the Crystal Bay home of Bruce and Nora James to celebrate the election of Chuck Allen as Washoe County Sheriff, and help him wind up remaining election campaign debt.
Included in the group were North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District Chief Mike Brown and Incline Village Justice Court Justice of the Peace Alan Tiras.
The grateful sheriff told the group he has assigned one commander, four officers and one detective to Incline/Crystal Bay, and that the local crime rate remains low.
His policy is that any report of graffiti will be responded to in 24 to 48 hours, since such defacement tends to encourage other criminal acts.
Sheriff Allen also responded to questions about the 15-year-old Honorary Deputy Association, a charitable organization responsible for the Shop with the Sheriff Program each December, in which needy kids are taken to a Walmart and given a $200 credit.
In all, the event raised $21,800 for Allen, surpassing its goal of $20,000.
