STAR Camp is actually a lot more fun than it looks. Don’t believe us!? We had over 120 kids apply for camp this year.

STAR Camp is a four day camp at the end of June where 5th-8th graders get to spend a few days out in the beauty of nature (away from screens) and building new skills.

Take a look it’s in a book. 📚Reading is fun, especially when you have a lively bunch of kids at the North Fair Oaks Library to read to. It’s a great way to take a break from our day as well and it’s always fun spending quality time with these youngsters. #reading #coplife #nfolibrary #northfairoaks

It might look like fun and smiles in this picture and sometimes training can be fun, but we take violent intruder training very serious.

Training like this is something we revisit regularly and we feel you can never be too prepared for when it does happen. #smcsheriff #training #activeshooter #violentintruder
The campers at Pets In Need got a special visit from K-9 Wyatt and his partner Deputy Willet. They put on a demonstration for the campers and there was TLC all around. 💞

The last time the K9 guys stopped by, the kids loved it so much they wrote thank you cards. Swipe right to read what they wrote.➡️ Oh, don’t worry the Deputies read the cards to the dogs every night so they are reminded of the positive impact they are making in this world. 👦🏽👧🏻🧒🏼🐶@petsinneed1965 #k9unit #k9friends #petsinneed #smcsheriff #communitypolicing #happycampers
Ahhh Fourth of July… where trips to the county jail can start with the words “I’m fine to drive.“ K9 Cir, wants to remind everyone, “don’t risk your freedom on Independence Day by getting arrested or hurt.” Do the true American thing and celebrate responsibly.

🏈NFL Alumni and 2 time champion 🏆Allan Kennedy, along with the Los Altos History Museum Apricot Kids measured the speed of footballs that were thrown during a S.T.E.M. fair.
S.T.E.M. stands for science, technology, engineering and math and we applied a lot of those principals while dealing with velocity, speed and distance of the footballs as they were being thrown.

Check out our video on Facebook to see how some of the kids matched up with Allan’s pro throw.

“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” The Special Olympics athletes 🚴🏽‍♂️🏊🏽‍♂️🤾‍♂️⛹️‍♀️🏋🏿‍♀️were awarded medals at this year’s summer games. We also presented Special Olympics with a check for 💰1.1 million dollars which was raised collectively by numerous Northern California law enforcement agencies. It is always a humbling experience to witness the achievements of each of the participants and certainly fun too! 
We are proud of every athlete! 🤩👍
