The men and women of the Pacifica Police Department continue their support of those in need as a result of the wildfires in the North Bay.

As day 4 of mutual aid begins, Pacifica officers join a contingent of San Mateo County officers responding to the North Bay. Law enforcement and fire personnel will not rest until those in harm's way are able to.

Pacifica officers assisting those in need at the scene of the North Bay fires have been moved by the magnitude of the devastation.

The Pacifica Police Department continues its response to the North Bay to assist at the fire locations. Our hearts go out to the many that have lost so much.

Our dispatch center is receiving numerous 911 calls regarding the smoke from the fires in the North Bay. Please be aware that the smell of smoke is strong from these fires. If you smell smoke, please check your surroundings to determine if you can see smoke or fire before calling 911. It is important that our 911 lines be kept free for life threatening emergencies. You cooperation is appreciated.

According to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues. Each year, more than 41,000 individuals die by suicide, leaving behind their friends and family members to navigate the tragedy of loss. In many cases, friends and families affected by a suicide loss (often called “suicide loss survivors”) are left in the dark. Too often the feelings of shame and stigma prevent them from talking openly. The Pacifica Police Department encourages our community members to familiarize themselves with warning signs of suicide and reach out to those in need. Below are links to helpful information and crisis resources:

In loving remembrance of those we lost 16 years ago today.....

Chief Dan says- Keeping our community safe is best accomplished through strong law enforcement/community communications. You know your neighborhood better than anyone! Help us keep your neighborhoods safe. If you see something, SAY SOMETHING!

With very warm temperatures on the coast and insanely hot temperatures inland, expect Pacifica beaches to be packed and traffic to be heavy the entire weekend. Please plan ahead, leave early and exercise patience on the roadway as everyone tries to cool down!
