CaliforniaEmployees of Waste Management, refuse collection provider for California's Nevada County, will help local law enforcment agencies keep an eye on the neighborhoods they serve, under a partnership announced last week. The crime watch program—dubbed WasteWatch—will have Waste Management drivers looking for evidence of illegal activity. "We welcome the extra eyes and ears in our neighborhoods," said Jeff Powell, an operations captain with the Nevada County Sheriff's Office, in a statement. "Waste Management drivers provide services in our community on a daily basis." (The Union, Grass Valley, Dec. 3)

CaliforniaIn a new kind of cannabis crackdown in California's Nevada County, a special team of deputies is going door-to-door to make sure medical marijuana growers are following the law. The policy, ostensibly in response to some 200 complaints from neighbors, follows a new county ordinance. "The ordinance was designed to improve the quality of life in Nevada County," said Sgt. Guy Selleck of the Nevada County Sheriff's Department. "The complaints were basically driven from the odors of marijuana."
