SFO had a full scale emergency exercise with a simulated plane crash and water rescue. There were multiple agencies involved and it’s always a great day to train for an emergency.

This scenario was a major undertaking and we want to thank everyone who participated and made it happen. Teamwork is necessary in any emergency. #weareready @flysfo @uscg @redwoodcityfire #smcoes #southsanfranciscofire #marineunit #sfoemergencyexcercise #sfoeoc #smcmarineunit #sfoairport
San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office covers over 744 square miles. That’s more than the distance from here to Los Angeles and back!

It’s everything in between San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and Santa Clara counties. That’s a lot of area to cover, especially if there’s an emergency 🚨 and we always appreciate your patience and understanding when we have to get from one place to another. 🙏

There is also a lot of great things happening in these communities everyday and beautiful sights to see. Please don’t be distracted by the sights and always drive safely.

About last night...
We got up to some interesting stuff in the latest segment of “Day in the Life” as we followed along with the Gang Task Force. 
There were drugs, a restraining order violation, oh yeah and a foot chase!🏃🏻‍♂️(comment below if you think we caught the suspect) 👀

Visit our Facebook and make sure you watch all the way to the end, because you won’t want to miss any of the action!🧐 #dayinthelife #gangtaskforce #smcsheriff #communitypolicing #keepingthestreetssafe #sanmateocounty #sanmateocountysheriff
“Wir lieben es mit der Gemeinschaft zu arbeiten.”=“We love working with the community.” 🚴🏽‍♂️ While deputies Zeugin and Paterson were monitoring a stop sign, in downtown Half Moon Bay, they were approached by some tourists. Turns out these visitors had more in common with our deputies than they thought!

They spoke German🇩🇪 and Deputy Paterson was able to converse with them in their native language and learn more about each other.

Moments like this happen all over the county and we are always excited to celebrate the things that make us different and the things that connect us as well.💞🤝 #Liebe (love)
#Gemeinschaft (community)
#Danke (thank you)

Did you see how excited Mieko was about jumping out of the helicopter! The dog not the Deputy, but would you do it?! (Comment below)

We train our K9s under many different circumstances and environments to make sure they are well adjusted and capable of working through the most challenging of conditions.

Big thanks to @sjpdofficial for hosting this training and @sccosheriff for providing the awesome helicopter rides!! #k9unit #communitypolicing #communitysafety #smcsheriff #traininghard #trainlikeyoumeanit
Hey look who wanted to jump into our car! While patrolling in this child’s neighborhood, Deputy Brown stopped to say hello and show off his patrol car to these curious kiddos. There was even time to sneak in some safety tips✅

Deputy Brown truly enjoys serving the North Fair Oaks community and we love getting breaks in the day to soak up moments like this!!💞👮🏻‍♂️👦🏻👍 #communitypolicing #communitymatters #nextgeneration #smcsheriff

When our bike patrol deputies weren’t writing citations for people smoking marijuana in public, they took a break with a few campers to play corn hole and talk about the local sights.

Just because marijuana is legal for people over 21, does not mean you can do it in public and certainly not while driving. Please consume responsibly. #communityoutreach #weareallinthistogether #communitypolicing
So you’re going out tonight, huh? 
Sounds fun! And we sure hope you have a great time, that’s what weekends are for!

It’s always a good day when you get to hold puppies at work. 🐶These precious pups belong to a homeless military veteran that we are assisting with getting connected to resources and housing to get him back on his feet. Holding the puppies is just an additional bonus!😍🤩 If you know someone who is struggling, there is help out there and you don’t have to go through it alone. San Mateo County has many programs and services to help you get connected. You can check it out on ✅

These young ladies were making friends with Deputy Marcussen and Sergeant Sheridan as they were selling lemonade. 🍋 Who could resist buy a few cups from these two!? Not us! 😍

If you have a lemonade stand, be sure to tag us and we would love to stop by for a few cups to support our community and get to know you.
