Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter ~ Wednesday, March 9, 2016 5B LAW and ORDER ran In lana joins umas Dan McDonald Managing Editor Plumas County's newest deputy isn't a rookie -- far from it. And he's not a local guy, either. Sheriff Greg Hagwood said adding Doug Wilber to his staff represents "a departure from our established norm of the last few years." Hagwood's practice has been to hire homegrown deputies who know the area and plan to spend their entire career at the Plumas County Sheriff's Office. But when Wilber called, the sheriff said it was an opportunity that was too good to pass up. Wilber, a 20-year veteran of the Hendricks County Sheriff's Department in Indiana, was looking to move to the west coast. He did some research and picked Plumas County as his new home. "I looked around northern California," Wilber said. "I heard really good things about Plumas County. I heard that things were changing for the better and that possibly they would be looking for deputies, to catch up back where they were (staffing-wise) in the 1990s." That's when the courtship began. Wilber made three trips from Indiana to Plumas County to try to land the job. He also challenged, and passed, the California State Post (Peace Officer Standards & Training) exam. In turn, Hagwood dispatched staffto Indiana to conduct a thorough background check on Wilber. It all came together Tuesday morning, March 1, when Wilber was sworn in as a Plumas County Sheriff's deputy. "We are very proud to have him," Hagwood said after the ceremony. "The effort, the determination, the tenacity that he's demonstrated in coming all the way from Indiana to Plumas County ... It reflects incredibly well on Doug. "I'd like to think that it's also a reflection on Plumas County, and the sheriff's department, that people from so far away would commit to coming here." Wilber, 42, and his wife Shelly, established a home in Chester about a week before he was swornin. Although Wilber will be serving the entire county, Hagwood said having a deputy based in the Lake CHP REPORT The following incidents are submitted by the Quincy Area California Highway Patrol as a tentative summary pending the conclusion of the investigation(s).

"The fact that he's residing in Chester is a huge accomplishment for us," Hagwood said. "Chester has really suffered a lack of deputies residing in the community. And this is a great measurable step in having our staff in the communities that they will be serving." Wilber said Plumas County is a great fit for him. "I'm an avid fisherman. I love to hunt. And Plumas County is just A-plus for that in the state. "I'm very pleased to have been hired by .the sheriff," Wllber added. "I look forward to serving the citizens of Plumas County for the next 20 years."
