SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department said today it has laid off multiple deputies to help deal with a $2.8 budget deficit.
Ten deputies left in total. Nine were laid off and one took a job at another agency.
The department also put a freeze on promotions for the rest of this fiscal year and next year, and said nobody in the department, except for the sheriff and undersheriff, would be taking home department vehicles.
Open positions will also not be filled. These include captain, lieutenant and three sergeant positions.
More personnel cuts could be coming in July.
