Above the Call: Parole agents face danger in Tehama County shooting spree

When a man began a shooting rampage across a quiet county in Northern California, agents from the Division of Adult Parole Operations (DAPO) were there to answer the call for assistance. On Nov. 14, an active shooter was reported at the Rancho Tehama Elementary School, located in a rural area of Tehama County. Mutual aid was requested for all available law enforcement in the area to respond. Four parole agents responded to the scene with the initial responders. As the situation escalated in the county, a second request for law enforcement assistance was broadcast and three parole agents and a supervisor responded. Following the incident, DAPO activated Peer Support for all involved agencies.
