For the last month, Rosemont residents near a park or school may have noticed an extra police presence on Friday and Saturday nights.
That's because the head of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department's East Division, which includes Rosemont, assigned an extra team of two officers to the area on those nights over the past four weeks.
Capt. Rosanne Richeal, who also serves as Rancho Cordova's Chief of Police, said the extra patrols were assigned "basically, to be a presence" and to see if they could learn anything new about Jessica Funk-Haslam's homicide or .
They were unable to learn any new information about either incident, and the extra enforcement will end this weekend, Richeal said.
"I have a tight budget to manage; however, I also have the discretion to direct resources in manner I deem necessary for the sake of public safety," she said in a later email.
But the patrols weren't completely in vain. The following are some of the activities they participated in, according to Richeal:
Vehicle stops: 4
Suspicious person stops: 69
Schools patrolled: 20+
Parks patrolled: 30+
Businesses patrolled: 25
Assists of regular patrol officers: 8
