Chronic Crime Problems in North Auburn
The Placer County Sheriff's Office has created a full-time deputy position to deal with chronic crime problems in the north Auburn area.
Deputy Ryan Zender was selected as the new problem-oriented policing (POP) deputy, which is a specialized position created to deal with a range of community problems and crime prevention. That will include dealing with homeless and transient-related issues that have become prevalent in north Auburn.
Zender, a nine-year veteran of the sheriff's office, has been working closely with the transient population in north Auburn for the past few years, in addition to his regular patrol duties. The POP position will allow him more time to deal with these issues, while building partnerships with business owners, property owners, and members of the community, he said. Zender said he plans to take a proactive and concentrated focus on solving problems relating to chronic crime and nuisance complaints.
Zender will partner with various agencies to problem-solve these issues. Those agencies include the Auburn Police Department; Placer County Code Enforcement, Planning Department and building inspectors; Cal Fire arson investigators and other fire departments; Children's Services; the District Attorney's Office; and Placer County Probation Department and State Parole agents. He will also work with PG&E, PCWA, Nevada Irrigation District, Auburn Recreation District and business and homeowners' associations.
