Orange County Register-
Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes has once again put San Clemente city officials on notice regarding his department providing services to the beach town.
After a rally against the statewide stay-at-home order on Thursday, May 21, resulted in eight arrests and required a mobile field force of deputies, Barnes wrote a letter to San Clemente Interim City Manager Bob Dunek questioning city leadership.
“The council’s past and recent actions, or at times, inability to act or provide direction, has made the manner in which we provide law enforcement services extremely difficult,” Barnes wrote in the letter dated May 22. “The city through its council and executive team has made decisions that are inconsistent with our values and principles for community-oriented policing.
