Sacramento County orderOn Tuesday, June 2, Sacramento County proclaimed a Local State of Emergency in the wake of civil unrest within the County and the deployment of National Guard troops in the area to assist with local law enforcement agencies.

The proclamation is primarily an administrative tool for the County to access state resources such as National Guard troop deployment as well as activate the State Emergency Services Act, which helps to facilitate coordinated response throughout the County.

The proclamation goes into effect retroactively on May 30, when dangerous civil unrest in Sacramento occurred. The Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting on June 4 at 9 a.m. to confirm and ratify the proclamation.

The County will review the need for continuing the local emergency at least every 60 days and will terminate it at the earliest possible date the conditions warrant.
