Last Thursday at a community meeting with the Elk Grove Police Department and local residents, Elk Grove Police Chief Bryan Noblett responded to a question about crime increasing if the proposed Wilton Rancheria Casino is built in Elk Grove. Noblett said the department did a thorough investigation by contacting other law enforcement agencies near other casinos. Noblett said one of the agencies contacted dealt with a casino located near a mall, similar to what will be the case in Elk Grove. Noblett also said that he felt that the agreement with the tribe to pay for the impact caused by the casino would mitigate any issues that may come about.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the city of Elk Grove and the Wilton Rancheria Tribe, calls or the tribe to pay for the impacts of the casino on the city.
The Elk Grove Police Department will receive:
