What a great turn out yesterday at the annual Mariposa Safe Families Halloween Trunk-or-treat! Thank you to everyone who came out and visited with us!

Halloween Safety Tips Trick-or-treating should be one of the great adventures a child experiences on Halloween. We would like to provide a few tips for parents to help ensure the experience is also a safe one! - Never trick or treat without parents. - Always cross the street at corners. - Use traffic signals and crosswalks. - Never cross the street between parked cars. - Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. - Beware of vehicles backing out of driveways. - Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them. - Put cell phones and other electronic devices down while crossing the street. - Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic, the furthest to the left as possible. - Carry a flashlight or glow stick and/or wear reflective tape. - Never go into a stranger’s house or car. - Older children should trick or treat in groups and stay in familiar locations. - Plan your route and share it with your family We hope that you have a fun and safe Halloween!

This is an amazing organization. We get asked all the time during disasters how people can help, this is a great way to get involved!

Hey, that’s us!! #yourewelcome

Sheriff Binnewies is in Washington DC today as part of the Leadership Day for California, Alaska and Hawaii.

Come out and see us at the Car Show today at the fairgrounds. Come walk through the MRAP, learn all about it how we got it and what we use it for!

Deputy Crane located a skunk with a plastic cup stuck on it’s head last night while on patrol. He immediately notified Sergeant Charman who responded right away (as you can see from the video he never exited his car). Deputy Crane felt bad for the skunk but was obviously reluctant to approach it. Deputy Crane mustered the courage and after nearly 10 minutes of trying to use his baton to pull off the cup (as shown in the video), grabbed the cup with his bare hands and freed the skunk from it’s bonds! All in a nights work! #DeputyCraneDoesntStink #NewbieDuties #nightshift #MariposaSheriff #FreeTheSkunks #CupHead
