I've served the same notices. The exact text of the form in current use states "action in the capacity (of a peace officer) is prohibited." The Sheriff can give that order to his personnel. The Sheriff cannot take away peace officer status. That status was given by the state and only the state can take it away. That was the focus of the Safety Police case.
