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 Intermountain area.

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.
