Nothing better than Smoked Salmon๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– Smoke the other & soon after, meet your maker!

Can you guys arrest whoever is responsible for the beef jerky prices? It's criminal! A dollar per ounce!

Another raise for your social media person!!! Hilarious

Great advice!! Couldn’t have said it any better ๐Ÿ˜‚

Coincidentally, if you smoke meth you’ll probably end up smoking some guys meat

Today marks the 75th anniversary of the flag raising at Iwo Jima. The battle lasted a long five weeks involving 130,000 American and Japanese troops. A total of 25,000 troops lost their lives, with a ratio of 3:1 Japanese to American. Three of the men in the photo were later killed in action while fighting the remaining Japanese forces on the island.

Thank you for your patriotism PCSO and thank you for your service and that of your families!

May they all continue to Rest In Peace. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

PCSO thanks so much for posting this very historic photo , IWO JIMA. I recall learning about Iwo Jima at the movie house in KC after the battle had been won, seeing some of the footage of that fight, then this important snapshot of the raising of our USA flag. My heart swelled with joy, even though I knew very little about what a struggle it was for this accomplishment. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ RIP all of my fellow Americans for the unselfish giving of your life, AND to all the rest of the Military personal, for guaranteeing the rest of us, back home, peace of mind, knowing that your valor & service came with a big price. We love you and THANK YOU your service & appreciate your part in allowing the USA to continue to be the land of the FREE & THE BRAVE. The country of FREEDOM. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ May old Glory forever wave & keep our nation FREE. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Whom ever you are, where ever you are, THANK YOU, THANK, YOU, THANK YOU๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ Please continue to pray for all that our country stands for AND for those whom responsibility it is to continue our long standing, looked up to, position in the world.๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™

God bless those who served, fought, bled and died for our freedoms. Never forget! Never!

You really should not put your logo on this photo. It's wrong. We appreciate your respect of the battle. My father described his arrival shorty lafter the battle in such a way words cannot describe. If you saw his eyes while he described the aftermath you knew he saw hell.

My father was there at the bottom of the hill. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Thanks PCSO for the great reminder you have given our community to be grateful and humbled to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. And to remember those who survived some of the most horrific fighting conditions so ensure our freedom I for one couldn’t be more thankful for past and present military and first responders. Thanks PCSO, you guys are amazing!

I say thank you too! I had a Marine uncle who survived this horrible battle!

Love history and remembering is, hopefully, learning. These men gave everything for the untold generations to come. Thank you.

A thank you to all who served or are serving to keep us safe and free…..๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

On the 13th of this month, Charles Pitman lost his battle with cancer. Who is Charles โ€œChuckโ€ Pitman? Pitman spent nearly four decades as a Marine serving three combat tours. Pitman earned a Silver Star for gallantry in battle, four Distinguished Flying Crosses, a Bronze Star for heroism, and a Purple Heart while defending our great nation.

But the reason we are honoring this manโ€™s life, is what he did for the people of New Orleans during a murderous crime spree by a lunatic gunman. On New Yearโ€™s Eve 1972, Mark James Robert Essex carried out a sniper attack with a .44 caliber rifle against New Orleans police officers. Essex shot three officers, two being fatal.

About a week later, Essex was at it again. Essex entered a downtown hotel armed with his rifle, killing four people immediately and setting rooms on fire. Essex the waited for first responders to arrive, when he then shot and killed three officers and wounded many others.

Pitman was stationed at a nearby base and refused to sit idle as a madman wreaked havoc in the Big Easy. Pitman assembled a team of volunteers on base and launched a mission to eliminate the threat without any sort of approval from his command. It was later said the CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter was โ€œborrowed.โ€

Pitman flew to the scene and loaded several officers with rifles. Pitman flew the aircraft right over the gun battle, exposing himself and crew, to spotlight the gunman. This allowed officers to get clear shots on Essex and ultimately take him down. It was reported that Essex had been shot approximately 200 times.

Pitman faced a possible court martial for his bold action, but with help from members of Congress he was rightfully painted as the hero he always was.

Pitman was 84 years old when he died last week. Rest in peace Sir. You are a true American Hero. Semper Fi ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

92 years ago today we lost Placer Deputy Frank H. Dependener to an on-duty auto accident. Frank was returning to the station along with then Sheriff of Placer County Elmer Gum after a prohibition raid in Roseville, when their vehicle rolled off of a 25-foot embankment. Sheriff Gum survived, but Frank suffered a broken neck and died.

Frank was a very large man standing at 6โ€™7 earning him the nickname โ€œBig Dipโ€, and served an eventful 37 years as a local lawman. During his career, Frank had been shot and wounded by various weapons as he was fighting crime in Placer County.

Rest in Peace Deputy Dependener, youโ€™re never forgotten.

He is buried in the Auburn Cemetery and was portrayed by an actor at the cemetery tour. It's an interesting event…there are some wild characters buried there!

On Feb. 15, Kentucky Detective Chase McKeown and his wife, Officer Nicole McKeown, were enjoying their weekly date night at a Raising Canes in Louisville, when they noticed a man wearing a surgical mask and a black hooded sweatshirt enter the restaurant. The McKeowns took action and even managed to catch up with Carter after chasing him through downtown Louisville. They were able to arrest him with the help of local law enforcement. Now that is what we call a date with justice! ๐Ÿ’™ See MoreSee Less

Criminal picked the wrong chicken restaurant! Love this story! Awesome LEO couple always on duty! Super date night rush! Would be nice if the city gave this couple a super couple resort vacation!! They should get something special for their alertness, action, and success!

Just another night for blue..thankful they are safe and hopeful that they are not in New York where this guy would have been let go…now that’s an exciting date night…next time, hopefully it will be more peaceful

Good for them. Now that’s what I like to hear. The bad guy is in cuffs…and no one was hurt! Way to go Officers McKeown. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

First date material! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ Thanks for posting a win-win for the Blue!! Back the blue๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

Power couple! Awesome work.

Poor officers can't even have a quiet date night . . . Smh๐Ÿ˜’
Great job officers! Your were definitely right where God wanted you to be!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜

Awesomeness!!!

Right time, right place!!!

We went to Louisville last year and loved it. We even looked at some houses. No offense to Placer County as this is home and always has been, but Placer County has the unfortunate Geographical challenge of being located in Komifornia. We want to stay, but Louisville is calling and it seems Placer County is helping to push us that way. Love our Law Enforcement and all they do!!!!!!!

I love my wife. We been together for 24 years and there is still a ton of spark and spunk left in our relationship, but after reading this, dang we’re gonna have to step up our date night game a few notches. Way to go McKeowns y’all win couple of the year for sure. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Wow, that's pretty awesome, a two cop couple who have time for a date night!๐Ÿคท‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜…

Thank goodness they were there and handled the situation safely.

Love it but I hope the next date night is quieter lol

Love this! Great cop couple!

Thank you for preventing another criminal. Stay safe out there. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ

A date night to remember. How do you follow that up? Coffee and pie?
Great job. 24/7 always on duty.

He was just protecting himself from the corona virus. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I loved that story!

Great job for both officers.

Awesome, thanks. Job well done

Geez, when he asked if she wanted a few shots after dinner, they had no idea it would involve their firearms

Awesome teamwork !!

The way she cleared her firing line from her husband… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
