CSI-Sacramento: Interview with Deputy John Lopes

The Sheriff’s Department is always looking for ways to better serve our community. With the holidays rapidly approaching, Central Division is proposing a warrant clearing event. The purpose of the event is twofold. One, to allow members of the public to come in to and obtain new court dates for their respective qualifying warrants without the stress of having law enforcement contact during the holiday season. The Sheriff’s Department understands life moves at a fast pace and there are a variety of reasons why a warrant may be issued. This Warrant Clearing Event will help foster the relationships with the Sheriff’s Department and the community we proudly serve. This event will allow the Sheriff’s Department to mitigate the thousands of active misdemeanor warrants in Sacramento County. Only misdemeanor citable warrants are eligible for obtaining a new court date.

And the winner is...

Thank you, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento, for inviting us out to help at your event.

Their level of professionalism and cooperation through this process has been a great collaborative experience – we are grateful for their partnership.

Happy Halloween, Sacramento County! It's the time of year for costumes, sweets, tricks and treats. Remember to trick-or-treat with care. Here are a few safety tips to help ensure everyone has a safe and fun-filled night: • Young children should always trick-or-treat with an adult. • Go up to the door with your children when trick-or-treating. • Encourage older kids to trick-or-treat with a group of friends or parents. Make sure someone in the group has a flashlight with fresh batteries. • If your child will be trick-or-treating without you, plan and discuss a familiar route and set a curfew. Review safety rules, including staying with the group, walking on the sidewalk, approaching only clearly lit homes and never going inside a home or car for a treat. Have your child carry a cell phone for the evening so that he or she can contact you. • Inspect the treats before allowing your child to indulge. Discard anything that's not sealed, has torn packaging or looks questionable. • Always remember to cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. • If you are driving on Halloween, watch for children who might pop out between parked cars. Be especially careful entering or leaving driveways and alleys. K9 Roy hopes all the ghouls and goblins enjoy their Halloween!

NEWS RELEASE: STATEMENT FROM SHERIFF JONES REGARDING PITTSBURGH INCIDENT As the horrific events in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania unfolded and the extent of the threat was not yet known, the Sheriff's Department initiated several actions locally. First, we provided extra patrols around Jewish centers, schools, and synagogues, especially during service times. Second, I activated our Regional Threat Assessment Center with a specific eye toward similar threats, either current or within the recent past. Next, our Intelligence Operations Group went to work monitoring intelligence, media, and social media outlets to determine if the event, threat or suspect had any ties locally. I communicated with the FBI locally to ensure open communication and exchange of information. Further, I communicated with the Jewish representative of the Sheriff's Outreach Community Advisory Board (SOCAB), who could further liaise between the Sheriff's Department and the Jewish Community as the details unfolded. As of this time, there appears to be no local link or ties for the suspect in the shooting, and no local threat posed from the incident. Within the last year, we have taken several measures to enhance security at places of worship, including developing and presenting a series of training events for worship leaders on facility security, critical incident pre-planning and active shooter response for places of worship; conducted security and site assessments for numerous places of worship; and--most importantly--have developed and maintained relationships with many religious leaders of various faiths throughout Sacramento County. The Sheriff's Department is committed to helping ensure safe worship for ALL religions and beliefs, and we stand together in sorrow with the victims and their families, the Jewish community and the entire Community of Pittsburgh. -Sheriff Scott Jones
