Small California Town Lapses on Workers' Comp Insurance, Briefly Shuts Down Police Department

The town of Isleton, California shut down its police department for about a week in late January after it lost its workers' compensation insurance for lack of payment.  During the shutdown, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department assumed responsibility for high priority calls in the area.  The department was back up and running after negotiating a policy with a new carrier.
