Shasta County Sherriff’s Detective
The Burney substation of the Shasta Count Sheriff’s
Department will reopen next Monday at 10 a.m.
Introducing our Service O.cer Team:
When the Burney Station closed its business o.ce doors
on June 30, 2009, then Service Officer Nancy Carter
vowed to be around when it reopened. Since that fateful
day, Nancy continued working for the Shasta County
Sheri.’s O.ce in various assignments, maintaining her
employment. Nancy’s perseverance paid o. when, on June
30, 2015, she was told she had her old job once again.
Six years to the day!
Nancy grew up in the Redding area and after high school,
she enlisted in the Army. As part of her mili- tary
training, Nancy piloted helicopters in the U.S. and
South Korea. Nancy eventually retired from the Army and
settled in Tombstone, Arizona where she obtained her
Master Degree in Counseling. Nancy moved back to
Northern California in preparation to retire but found
an interest in public safety and law enforcement. Nancy
has been a Reserve Deputy with the Shasta County
Sheri.’s O.ce for 8 years. We welcome her back to the
Burney Sta- tion to continue her commitment to the
Meet Amanda Pruitt. She was born and raised in Shasta
County. She moved to the Intermountain about 13 years
ago and married not long after. She and her husband
enjoy spending their time outdoors and traveling.
Amanda has worked with the public since she was in high
school. Many citizens in the Intermountain area may
recognize Amanda. She has spent the last 11 years
working at Les Schwab Tire Center in Burney. While
working full time, she attended Shasta College and
received her AS Degree in Humanities. We are grateful to
have Amanda on our team.
