There was a head-on collision over the Veteran’s Day weekend and one of the drivers had to be extracted from the car using the jaws of life (pictured above). Fortunately, everyone survived this accident, but we still want to remind everyone to be safe,  never drive impaired, always wear your seatbelt, and eliminate distractions.

The San Mateo County Narcotics Enforcement Team recently seized 25 grams of crack cocaine, 4 handguns and 1 assault rifle.

We work hard everyday to ensure the safety of our communities even if you don’t always see it.

A night that should've been filled with dancing & laughter turned tragic by senseless violence — our hearts are heavy for the people of Thousand Oaks and everyone affected by the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar, which took 12 lives including @vcsheriff Sergeant Ron Helus.

REST IN PEACE: Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the force who was on the verge of retirement.

The families of the victims and everyone affected by this tragic event are in our thoughts and prayers.

30 years of service and not only does Correctional Officer Vasquez get this distinguished plaque, but he also gained three decades worth of lasting professional relationships, a community service career he can be proud of, and a family of colleagues who are honored to serve next to him and thankful to have him apart of the team.

Please join me in congratulating CO Vasquez on his dedication and commitment to this community and the Sheriff’s Office.

What’s better than enjoying a beautiful Saturday sunset?

Getting more time to enjoy it!

Tonight is the end of daylight savings and for some, that means the bars stay open later and more drinking. For others that means more sleep, or more time with friends and family.

Whatever you choose, please be safe. We want you to be around to enjoy many more sunsets.
