Lost hiker Cody Michael is looking great! He's going to get medically checked, but he has no injuries! Thank you to our amazing search teams! We'll give details about where and how he was found after we speak to the helicopter crew that located him in the Cherry Point area and hoisted him to safety.
Thank you to the Placer County Sheriff's Office Search & Rescue teams and other searchers!
Christina DetermanGrowers suck up a lot of water resources.. the water that would drain off into our streams and reservoirs goes towards those illegal crops, first.. Good example is in Fort Bragg area..it's not the only one, of course.. We already know the energy they drain.. Why isn't it legislation that those businesses licensed to sell be required to only buy from those "farms" that are paying taxes and showing their contribution to local utilities and ordinances? Where are they buying from?? Perhaps Placer can be an example of enforcing this? :)
Remembering our fallen on National Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Fay. ... See MoreSee Less
Today is National Law Enforcement Officers' Memorial Day. It is one of only two days a year that the American flag is required to be flown at half-mast. The Placer County Sheriff's Office encourages all residents and businesses to lower their U.S. Flags in honor and remembrance of our fallen peace officers; including the 123 officers who lost their lives this year protecting our communities.
This year, as in years past, we placed a PCSO patch and remembrance card next to the names of all nine fallen PCSO deputies on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington DC. In doing so, we honor our pledge to never forget these men who gave their lives for the people of Placer County.
