Twin Rivers Chief Placed on Paid Leave

(Sacramento, CA)
Thursday, November 10, 2011
Ever since a Twin Rivers Police officer was shot multiple times during a traffic stop three weeks ago, Chief Christopher Breck has been the subject of  public criticism….Several members of the community became upset when  the suspected shooter died in Sacramento Police custody.
 
They blame Breck for allowing his officers to go outside their jurisdiction and their intended purpose.  Last week, department emails encouraging quotas for officer stops surfaced.
 
Thursday, Breck was placed on paid administrative leave.  Twin Rivers will not say why.
 
Wednesday, the district changed the patrolling practices of the department, allowing officers to patrol only near school grounds or parks where they provide services.  
 
Captain Tran To will lead the department in Breck's absence.
 
The officer who was shot is expected to make a full recovery.
