Hello SN&R reader!

Is it safe? The neighborhoods of Sacramento County are struggling with the impacts of a smaller, less proactive sheriff's department. And Scott Jones, the county's new sheriff, is the first one to admit it. In this week's SN&R, we explore the future of local law enforcement in this era of striking budget deficits. Elsewhere in this week's paper, find SN&R's classic mix of local news, opinion, music, film, fun and food coverage.

Happy reading,
