Office of Law Enforcement - Sacramento, California

Owl picture

Sacramento is the capital city of California and has an urban population of 1.6 million. The greater Sacramento area has experienced an abrupt spurt in population growth in recent years, directly impacting a variety of habitat and our wildlife resources. Special Agents assigned to the Sacramento office respond to investigative demands in every county north to the Oregon border.

A total of 55 listed species (31 endangered and 24 threatened) are found in the counties covered by the Sacramento Office of Law Enforcement (OLE). The priority listed species include: the California Tiger Salamander, Giant Garter Snake, Fairy Shrimp, Long-horned Elderberry Bark Beetle, Snowy Plover, Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse, Marbled Murrelet, and the Northern Spotted Owl. The farm lands of northern California provide a major stopover and wintering area along the Pacific Flyway and waterfowl enforcement remains a recurrent issue. Migratory bird investigations also include the tracking of raptor electrocutions and avian deaths associated with power utility companies. Special Agents assigned to Sacramento also spend considerable time investigating habitat destruction cases and pursuing investigations into internet auctions/sales of federally protected wildlife.
