Central Marin Police Authority News

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Retired San Anselmo Police Chief Bernard “Bernie” Del Santo. Chief Del Santo passed away on June 19th at his home in Fairfax after a long battle with cancer. Chief Del Santo is survived by his sons Leo (Renee) and Tony (Cara), grandchildren Christopher, Taylor, and Brittany (Jeff); his brother Bob (Sharon), nephews Michael (Erika), Raymond, and great nephew Collin; and by his partner of many years Elizabeth McGrady, and her children Leigh and Joey. He will also be greatly missed by his beloved dog Eddie. Chief Del Santo was born November 10, 1938 at Ross Hospital and grew up in San Rafael. He was a graduate of St. Raphael’s Grammar School and Marin Catholic High School. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was sent to Naval Boot Camp in San Diego but suffered an injury that caused him to be discharged from training. He returned home to Marin and began his law enforcement career in 1962, when he joined the San Anselmo Police Department as a Reserve Police Officer. Two years later, he was hired full-time and sent to the San Francisco Police Academy. Chief Del Santo advanced through the ranks, serving as a Traffic Officer, Inspector Sergeant, and Captain. In 1979, he was named Chief of Police and headed the department for 20 years, until his retirement in 1999. Chief Del Santo had many accomplishments during his long career: he created a regional traffic enforcement team in the Ross Valley and then received the very first “multi-city” enforcement grant from the State of California’s Office of Traffic Safety (OTS); he taught defensive tactics classes for women at Isabelle Cook School; and he served two years as Chief of the Marin County Narcotics Task Force. Chief Del Santo was a longtime member of the California Police Chiefs Association, regularly attending meetings and keeping in contact with his fellow retired Chiefs. He was described by his peers as extremely loyal to his employees and a very hard-working man. Chief Del Santo was a fixture in the community, not only during his career but also in retirement. He coached Little League in Fairfax for many years and was a lifelong member of the Native Sons of the Golden West, Chapter 307. He was also a long-time member of the International Footprint Association (Footprinters), serving as both a past President and a Director of Chapter 15. He served as Chair of the Footprinters annual crab feed and would always make his mother’s delicious pasta sauce for the event. A Rosary and Vigil service will be held on Wednesday, June 27, at 7:00 p.m. at Monte’s Chapel of the Hills, 330 Red Hill Avenue, San Anselmo. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, June 28, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Raphael’s Catholic Church, 1104 Fifth Avenue, San Rafael. Interment at Mount Olivet Catholic Cemetery in San Rafael will be private. The Rosary and funeral Mass are open to the public.

Today was "Things That Go Day" at the San Anselmo Library. Lots of folks came out to see and explore the police car, fire engine, garbage truck, and more. Everyone had a GREAT time! Ofc. Drocco's new partner told her that she was clear to go home and that he would handle her beat for the rest of the day 👮‍♂️ #JrOfficer San Anselmo San Anselmo Recreation Department Ross Valley Fire Department

Nicholas, who just graduated from Hall Middle School, worked all last summer as a mobile car washer in order to earn the money to buy a mountain bike. Unfortunately the bike was stolen from his school's bike rack last month. School Resource Officer Scott McKenna arranged to get Nicholas a used bike that needs a little bit of TLC. It's just in time for his summer mountain bike camp. Have a great summer Nicholas!! 🚵‍♂️

25 years ago this week Ursula "Ursie" Cinollo was found stabbed to death in her Larkspur apartment and her case remains open and unsolved. We are asking for the public’s help in gathering additional information about this homicide. On Saturday, June 12, 1993, shortly after 1:00 p.m. Ursie's body was discovered inside her Lincoln Village apartment in Larkspur Landing. Ursie, age 92, was recovering from hip surgery and her family became concerned when she didn’t answer her phone. There were no signs of forced entry and nothing appeared to be disturbed or missing from her apartment. Ursie was a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother who adored her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She volunteered her time with organizations that advocated for and supported single parents in need, veterans, and the homeless. Ursie often donated her time, money and delicious cooking skills to those charitable organizations. Ursie’s grandchildren and great grandchildren remain heartbroken over her senseless death. We hope that even after 25 years someone will do the right thing, come forward, and help us solve this case. If you or someone you know has information regarding Ursie Cinollo’s death, please contact the CMPA Investigations Unit at 415.927.5150 or by email at TIPS@centralmarinpolice.org. Please share this post and help us find #JusticeForUrsie

Today was one of our favorite kind of days - we welcomed a new officer to our CMPA family and celebrated three promotions. First, Chief Norton swore-in Officer Rob Scalercio. Rob was born and raised in Santa Rosa and is a graduate of UC Davis. Law Enforcement runs in the family, his twin brother Anthony is an officer at San Rafael PD. Then the Chief introduced and swore-in our new corporals: Enrique Lopez, Scott Niklewicz, and Cheryl Paris. See the next posts for info about them. Congratulations Corporals!!

Can you help us ID this man? Last evening, May 11th at 8:21 p.m., we received a report of an indecent exposure involving a 16 year-old female juvenile victim. The victim said she was in the cosmetics aisle of the Rite Aid Store at Corte Madera Town Center when she felt someone brush against her. She turned around and saw the male suspect exposing his genitalia to her through his underwear. The suspect stared at the victim until she was able to quickly walk away. She described him as a black male adult, 20-30 years old, 5’10”, with a thin build, and possibly a long goatee. He was wearing a maroon or red hoodie, grey underwear, and light colored jeans. Store video show the suspect deliberately entering the aisle where the girl is standing. He pulls his pants down as he approaches her and as he passes by he appears to intentionally rub his buttocks against her. Shortly thereafter, he exposes his genitalia through his underwear to the victim, and remains facing her in this fashion until she is able to walk away from him. If you recognize this man or have any info, please contact CMPA at (415) 927-5150.

The Force is strong with our officers. The combined experience on this Patrol team is 467 years. We are all in good hands....and paws..... Happy #StarWarsDay from San Anselmo, CA -- the birthplace of Star Wars. #MayThe4thBeWithYou
