What he can do is detain the person and call for local authorities to come and write ticket/arrest the person.

The general breakdown of authority in California is:

City PD has jurisdiction throughout the city they are employed in.

County Sheriff has jurisdiction throughout the county they are employed in

CHP has jurisdiction throughout the state.
The paperwork doesn't matter, you will respond to the department's courthouse.
