BCSO Detective Miller talking to Jr High students today about how to be safe online. The internet and social media can be a dangerous place if you aren't careful about what you share and who you share it with.

Butte County Sheriff's Office received a call at approximately 2pm yesterday, from a couple who had gone camping in the Brush Creek/Mountain House area. The couple became trapped due to the snow in the area, but fortunately had limited cell reception and were able to call for help. A group of 10 BCSO and BCSO Search & Rescue personnel responded along with a Snowcat, Argo, the Command 1 Tow Vehicle and multiple 4 wheel drive vehicles. The stranded couple was located at approximately 9:45pm. The temperature was in the 20s, and they were running low on fuel. If you plan to visit mountain areas during this time of the year, plan ahead and pack accordingly. Make sure to let someone know where you plan to be and when you plan to return.

We're thankful for some much needed rain and snow! Please drive carefully!

Sheriff Honea recently swore in BCSO's newest Deputy Sheriff. Welcome to BCSO Deputy O'Hern!

We have produced a photobook from the first seventeen days of the Oroville Dam Spillway Incident. These photos were taken to capture and preserve the historic event that affected our community and so many of our neighboring communities while the world watched. The perspective offered in this book is a unique one of the inner workings of the leadership and teamwork of all involved that brought us through this crisis. We have published a limited run of 80 of these books and are asking for $40 each to cover the cost of the publication and support the auxiliary programs at the Sheriff’s Office. Copies for viewing are available at the Chico, Oroville and Gridley Libraries. To get your own copy, contact Sergeant Greg Reeves at greeves@buttecounty.net and please remember that we are only able to accept cash or checks made payable to the Butte County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse, a 501(c)(3) organization.
