We are so proud of the Sheriff’s Activities League teams (S.A.L.). These teams are made up of volunteers, S.A.L. team leaders, and Community Policing Deputies. Together they recently helped two elderly sisters clean up around their house in North Fair Oaks, taking away excess debris and painting their fence. They also spruced up Fair Oaks Elementary School, helping them remove graffiti and hanging out with residents after the work was done. These community outreach events not only make the neighborhood more beautiful, it also provides an opportunity for the residents to talk with deputies about any concerns they might have and allows the deputies to get to know the residents of the neighborhood better. If you are interested in picking up a FREE graffiti removal kit, stop by any of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Substations or come to the Community Policing Unit at 3151 Edison Way, Redwood City.
