Big shoutout to FC Elementary School, the PTA, and all the parents that came out this morning for Coffee with a Cop. It was great meeting everyone.

RIP Deputy Mark Stasyuk. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

Happy Labor Day Weekend. This long weekend is about relaxing. If you plan on using a ride share service (like Uber or Lyft) we have some tips for you. 1. Plan ahead. Before you request a ride, think about where you’re headed 2. Request your ride inside. Avoid spending unnecessary time outside alone with your phone in your hand. 3. Get in the right car. Before you get in the car, check that license plate, driver photo, and driver name all match what’s listed in the app. 4. Be a backseat rider. Sit in the backseat. This ensures you can safely exit on either side of the vehicle to avoid moving traffic, and it gives you and your driver some personal space. 5. Buckle up. A seatbelt is the most effective way to save lives and reduce injuries related to car accidents. 6. Share your trip details with a friend. 7. Protect your personal information. 8. Follow your intuition. Trust your instincts and use your best judgement. And if you ever feel you’re in an emergency situation, call 911 immediately. 9. Be kind and respectful the the Driver and their vehicle. 10. Give feedback on your trip. Ride sharing services reviews feedback
