See those smiling faces?  The smiles were contagious!

These are teens from Camp LEAD and we were thrilled to get to know them.  Camp LEAD is a program for high school students where, through a series of activities, they build leadership skills and help improve understanding and respect between students and law enforcement.

We were so thankful for this opportunity to meet these future leaders! #camplead #leadershipdevelopment #equity #understanding #respect #smcsheriff

As we begin National Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, please join us as we celebrate and appreciate all of the men and women that make up the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office (past and present). San Mateo County is a fantastic place to work and live and a lot of that is due in part to the hard work that all of our divisions contribute to everyday. We don’t pat ourselves on the back for the job we do but we do always appreciate hearing “Thank you for your service.” #lawenforcementappreciation #policeweek #thankyouforyourservice
While you were sleeping, deputies made a traffic stop for a simple registration violation and discovered the driver had a warrant. Upon searching the vehicle, deputies located a large amount of methamphetamine, meth pipes, and a lot of cash. All of these signs lead us to believe the driver may have been selling meth. He was booked in to jail on multiple charges. Great job deputies! #whileyouweresleeping #protectandserve #community
