Twin Rivers PD Has a New Acting Chief

Trinette Marquis with the Department says LaCosse spent three years as Commander of the area that includes the Twin Rivers district.

MARQUIS: "It's not ideal to have the number of transitions that we've had in the leadership of the department.  So, one of the things that we could do is make sure this person had ties to the community, understood the community as well."

Former Acting Chief Trang To requested a return to part time duty.  He is retired from the Sacramento County Sheriffs department. 
He launched an investigation of the Twin Rivers' department after one officer was shot, another officer shot an unarmed man, and the community complained about the department policing outside its jurisdiction back in October.  

Chief Christopher Breck has been on paid administrative leave since November pending the results of that investigation.

Marquis says some information obtained in that investigation has been turned over to the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives and the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office.

Acting Chief LaCosse will appear on the Capital Public Radio program, "Insight" on Monday at 10 a.m.
