Winter, 2013 – The Sheriff’s Office just moved Deputy Jason
Raines from Corrections to Patrol. Deputy Raines
will become a Resident Deputy in the Christmas
Valley area. He will attend the 16-week police
academy in January.
As we are in the winter season, I would like to take
the time to remind everyone that when they are
traveling or just going out to play to be prepared.
Lake County Search and Rescue held its annual
awards Banquet on December 13th. The following
were awarded their Basic OSSA Search and
Rescue certification: Brenna Able, Morgan Able,
Kevin Able, Krishna Able, Lesa Cahill, Steve Michael,
and Corey Thornton. Brenna and Morgan
Able are the first two from our new Explorer Post
to earn their basic SAR certification.
I would like to congratulate each and every one of
the volunteers who earned their certification. I
would also like to take this opportunity to thank
each of my Search and Rescue members for their
hard work and dedication to the citizens of Lake
County and their willingness to respond to any
call from me and any other Sheriff.
