2A Wednesday, June 29, 2011 Indian Valley Record Hagwood praises correction officers&apos; achievements Dan McDonald Staff Writer dmcdonald@plumasnews.com Correction officers Consue- lo Cisneros and Rebecca Steen were singled out for praise by Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood last week. Cisneros, the training man- ager for the county's correc- tional facility, was touted for bringing the department up to state standards. Steen, the newest member of the department, graduated May 4 from the Yuba College correctional academy where she garnered several awards. "I'm very proud of both of them," Hagwood said. "It's a tremendous help to me and my administration when we've got staff with the strengths that they have." Cisneros faced the daunting task of bringing the depart- ment's training program up to state standards. Hagwood said the program failed to meet the standards last year. He said fixing the problem was obviously a pri- ority, and the pressure to fix the problem was placed squarely on Cisneros' shoul- ders. "She worked under a lot of pressure, quite candidly, from me," Hagwood said. "To her credit, she stepped up to the plate and did a phenomenal job. I'm really proud of her ac- complishments." Cisneros, who was responsi- ble for training 21 people, ac- complished the goal while still performing her regular duties in the corrections department. "That required a tremen- dous effort," Hagwood said. "We don't have any excess staff. So, for her to identify the training needs and schedule around 21 people's existing work schedules, and bring us into compliance with the state, was just a huge accom- plishment." Although Cisneros was the one doing the teaching, she said it was a learning experi- ence as well. "It has opened up a lot of things for me in this depart- ment," Cisneros said. "It ex- panded my knowledge of what is necessary for us to be in compliance and how impor- tant it is to have everybody trained." Steen, who has been with the sheriff's office for six months, was a standout at the correctional academy. She graduated fourth out of 35 students and was honored for finishing first in her class for "best female defensive tac- tics" and "best report writ- ing." "Rebecca did an outstand- ing job at the academy, repre- senting the sheriff's depart- ment very well," Hagwood said. "She has distinguished herself very quickly here at the sheriff's department as a tremendous asset to the staff at the correctional center.', Steen, who is a 2006 gradu- ate of Quincy High School, said she loves her new job. "I love working with the staff that we have," Steen said. "And I really appreciate the environment that they create. I'm really glad to be a part of it." Hagwood said the feeling is mutual. "We are just incredibly From left, Assistant Sheriff Dean Canalia, corrections officers Cisneros and Rebecca Steen, and Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood gathered to honor Cisneros and Steen last I week at the sheriff's office in Quincy.

And very quickly has distinguished herself as a leader and is taking on added responsibilities."

The purpose of the meeting is to review applications sub- mitted for next Year's funding (Cycle 11) and make funding recommendations to the Plumas and Lassen national forest supervisors. Approximately $510,000 worth of projects has been submitted for $400,000 in fund- ing. Projects must benefit lo- cal trails, roads, forest health, watershed, and fish and wildlife habitat on Forest Ser- vice lands in Plumas County. The public is welcome to ob- serve and comment during ap- plicable comment periods. about this meeting, to express special needs or to request copies of the submitted pro- jects, contact Lee Anne Schramel Taylor at 283-7850. For other information about the legislation or the Resource Advisory Committee, go to fs.usda.gov/plumas. The RAC was originally estab- lished as a provision of the Se- cure Rural Schools and Com- munity Self-Determination Act of 2000. The law (Public Law 106-393) replaced an arrangement that gave coun- ties 25 percent of Forest Ser- vice receipts from logging, grazing, recreation and other activities on national forest lands. This is the last funding cycle; it remains unclear if the legislation will beextended.
