October 23, 2018 – The Truckee Police Department has received several complaints of tampering with political campaign signage within the Town limits.

Theft or vandalism of political campaign signs is a local issue, and not mentioned in the California Elections Code. While the Truckee Town code has no local ordinance prohibiting the theft or vandalism of political campaign signs specifically, such actions still amount to a property crime and may be criminally prosecuted as such.

If you see someone removing campaign signs or have knowledge of anyone doing so please call our non-emergency dispatch at (530) 550-2320.
