Deputy Ryan Zirkle EOW 3-15-18 Our hearts are broken as we lost one of our own today. Deputy Ryan Zirkle was a homegrown deputy that loved to serve his community. Ryan went to school in Novato and went on to get a bachelor’s degree from Chico State University. Ryan was hired in December of 2015 by starting his career in Detention Services. Ryan was quick to make it to Field Services in August of 2016 and passed the Field Training Program. Ryan worked hard and was recently appointed as a defensive tactics instructor. Our prayers are with Ryan’s family and his fiancé. The attached video is the support that we received when Ryan left the hospital earlier this morning. We want to thank all the agencies that were involved with a procession.

Here comes the rain again…. Some like singing in the rain, some not; but driving in the rain isn’t ever fun. Spring showers bring May flowers but wet pavement brings well….usually more driving accidents. Here are some tips to help you remember to drive safely out there: Replace your windshield wipers, Check your tire tread and air pressure. Make sure your headlights, taillights and brake lights work properly so other drivers can see you when it rains. And, remember to turn on your headlights whenever you drive in the rain. Avoid cruise control and stay alert, slow down and leave room between you and the car in front of you. Overall…be extra cautious in wet weather. We thank you for it!

Marin Law Enforcement Agencies were called to assist our partners Petaluma PD and Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office this morning in Novato. Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to multiple reports of armed home invasion robberies in the unincorporated area of west Petaluma. Petaluma PD officers located two vehicles leaving the area. A pursuit ensued to Novato where one vehicle stopped on SB 101 prior to the San Marin exit. Five African American men fled westward. A perimeter has been set and teams of Law Enforcement are searching for those suspects. Multiple firearms were located in and around that first vehicle. One of the suspects has been captured in the area with four still outstanding. The second vehicle was located in the Novato Costco parking lot where three suspects were taken into custody and one suspect remains outstanding. This is still very much an active investigation. Please avoid the area. Call 911 if you observe anything suspicious.

MCSO SAR to the Rescue The MCSO Search and Rescue is a group of highly trained and talented individuals that volunteer their time for the betterment of our communities. Recently, one of our youth volunteers received a letter from the Central Marin Police Authority commending his actions at a traffic accident in Corte Madera. Zachary Martinez watched a truck crash into a parked car and the occupants were unconscious. Zachary was able to get the driver out of the truck and then noticed that the passenger was trapped inside the truck. Zachary grabbed a hammer from the bed of the truck and broke the window and assisted the passenger out. Zach instructed the on-lookers to call 9-1-1, while he provided first aid to the occupants of the truck. When CMPA arrived on-scene, Zachary gave a detailed account of his observations and his actions. Sgt. Toby Miller wrote the following; "It is evident that at a young age, he takes his SAR training seriously. Please thank Zachary again on my behalf and keep up your training program-it is working" Congratulations Zach on a job well done.

Here's the latest information from Napa County.

Thank You for Your Service Eva Denegri Baker has announced her retirement and today will be her last day of service for the County of Marin and the Sheriff’s Office. Eva started her Sheriff’s Office career in our Documentary Services Unit as a Legal Process Specialist in 2002. For the past 15 years, Eva has been a valuable resource in the Office of Emergency Services as an Office Specialist. We wish Eva the best as she plans on starting her own copy editing business and working part time for the Wildfire Mitigation. Eva looks forward to spending time with our own retired Lt. Bruce Baker and volunteer to raise puppies for the Canine Companions for Independence in Santa Rosa. We wish you all the best.

While You Were Asleep The other night our patrol deputies received a call of a man that was in a church parking lot as he appeared lost or confused where he was. The deputies located the man and asked him what he was doing. The man said that he was a ballerina and has had a long interest in the school that was next to the church, even though he didn’t know the name of the church. The man started walking backwards and then started to run away from the deputies. The deputies were able to catch the man and after a struggle, the deputies were able to take the man into custody. The man appeared to be under the influence of drugs or having some type of mental health event. The man was booked into the Marin County Jail. #NotOnOurWatch #WhileYouWereAsleep

THEN & NOW: On International Women’s Day we want to celebrate by sharing with you a few photos of our past and a look at our present day. The first two pictures are from the 50’s and early 60’s when women in Law Enforcement were a rarity and also considered Matrons, necessary to maintain the security of women prisoners. They held no other equal or collateral special duties as their male counterparts. Over time and through the hard work and tenacity of some strong and talented women, we have become: Custody Deputies, Patrol Deputies, Sergeants, Lieutenants, and Detectives, Coroner Investigators, Dive Team members, Range Masters, Open Space Deputies, Boat Handlers, Managers, Supervisors and SO MUCH MORE! What is International Women’s Day? Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights." Started by the Suffragettes in the early 1900's, the first International Women's Day was celebrated in 1911. International Women's Day belongs to all communities everywhere - governments, companies, charities, educational institutions, networks, associations, the media and more. Whether through a global conference, community gathering, classroom lesson or dinner table conversation - everyone can play a purposeful part in pressing for gender parity. So make International Women's Day YOUR day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women. #InternationalWomensDay #PressforProgress #MeToo #TimesUp #IWD2018 #GenderParity #ChallengeStereotypes #WomensAchievements #PositiveRollModels #StrengthHasNoGender
