    ESTES PARK, Colo. (AP) — Authorities on Wednesday were investigating the death of a pilot who crashed while fighting a wildfire near Rocky Mountain National Park, the second person to die amid wind-driven, late season wildfires in the Rockies this week.

    When voters in Contra Costa County approved a new sales tax in last year’s election, they were promised a host of essential services in the ballot language: community health centers, better services for vulnerable populations and more money for emergency response. The county largely made good on that promise Tuesday, allocating about $104 million to an array of new programs centered around fire prevention, mental health and youth services, along with an expansion of the psychiatric emergency unit at the Martinez hospital. But praise for initiatives made possible by the new sales tax, Measure X, took a back seat at Tuesday’s meeting as the supervisors debated the community — and each other — over whether law enforcement should receive some of the new funding. After a chorus of pushback, the supervisors fell short of approving $6 million in tax revenue for additional Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office patrol in unincorporated areas, though it did give the department $2.5 million for new body-worn cameras. After a 4-1 vote in favor of body cameras, the board’s 3-2 vote for more sheriff patrol fell...

    SANTA CRUZ — At least 12 inmates at the Santa Cruz County Jail are under quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19 since Friday, according to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office. Several dozen more inmates, now under quarantine protocol, were exposed to the infected patients, who are either asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, according to a release from Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Daniel Robbins. The outbreak was discovered during routine inmate coronavirus rapid testing, Robbins wrote. Authorities are awaiting results of more extensive testing undertaken after the initial COVID-19 positive results, according to Robbins. While individual inmates at the jail have previously tested positive, the current outbreak was most significant to date, Robbins said. “We’ve had a really good track record of keeping it out of our jail,” Robbins said. “This is just one of those things that affected more people than any other we’ve had before.” Nearly a year ago, the virus spread to at least 10 county corrections officers after what officials at the time potentially linked to a large gathering of corrections coworkers outside of work.

    Human remains found in a remote Northern California forest last year have been identified as those belonging to a man reported missing more than 15 years ago, authorities said Saturday. David Neily was 69 years old when he was last seen by a family member in the California coastal town of Albion in April 2006, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Investigators later found his vehicles on a property in the tiny town of Westport before the case went cold. Last May, an employee at a private nature reserve contacted the sheriff’s office after finding human remains in an old-growth Douglas-fir forest in Branscomb, about 3.5 miles from where his car was found, the statement said.

    A masked, furry bandit broke into a Stafford home searching for food early Saturday. (Courtesy Stafford County Sheriff’s Office) A furry burglar was captured and released by deputies in Stafford County, Virginia, on Saturday morning, after residents reported a raccoon inside their home. Around 3 a.m. Saturday, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office said deputies found no signs of forced entry at the residence located off Novak Drive. But after a second call at 3:36 a.m. deputies discovered a raccoon who’d initially circumvented them. “Similar to the raccoon character RJ in the animated comedy ‘Over the Hedge,’ a raccoon entered the home to look for food,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. “Fortunately, this raccoon possessed none of the superpower abilities of Rocket, the anthropomorphic raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.” The four-pawed bandit was apprehended by police after they cornered the suspect in the bathroom. Sergeant G.A. Haney and Deputy K.P. Hall avoided use of force and instead “used a ballistic shield, ironing board and bamboo walking sticks to steer him back outside.” Deputies were compassionate toward the...
    Federal prisoner Robert Johnson Jr. ran past an unarmed guard on Tuesday inside Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport, ABC 13 reported. Officials said Johnson got off the airplane and asked to use the restroom, however, once his handcuffs were undone, he allegedly hit his escort and took off running. An additional camera outside the building showed Johnson sprinting past vehicles and to the nearby parking garage: Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell Lucas said deputies were unaware the prisoner would be arriving at the airport. “I think it was very unfortunate. It jeopardized the safety of passengers, both here at Mitchell and the airline,” Lucas stated. The sheriff explained that a private company, U. S. Corrections, was transporting the prisoner from Laredo, Texas, to Rock County, Wisconsin. “Johnson is facing robbery and cocaine charges. Neither the private prisoner transport company or the United States Marshals Service have responded about the escape,” the ABC 13 report said.

    The Santa Clara County jails are currently experiencing their highest level of active COVID-19 cases among the in-custody population, continuing a surge that began earlier this month and has now surpassed the peak of a record string of outbreaks in January. Data reported in an online dashboard maintained by the sheriff’s office show that through Friday, there were 140 active infections in the jails, which consist of the Elmwood Correctional Complex in Milpitas and the Main Jail in San Jose. The majority of the current spike in cases is centered on the Elmwood facility, which houses people under minimum- and medium-security supervision primarily in barracks and dorm-style settings. That figure represents a more than eight-fold increase since Nov. 3, when the spike began with 15 cases reported in a single day. On Tuesday, the county recorded 30 cases in a single day, the biggest one-day tally since January, when winter-driven increases across the country were taking hold. But that was a time before vaccines were widely available, and the current surge in the South Bay jails still tops even that early-year...

                        State Rep. Mark Spreitzer (D-Beloit) has accused the Racine County Sheriff’s Office of conducting a “political stunt” after an investigation into alleged nursing home election fraud. “The Wisconsin Election Commission directed municipalities throughout Wisconsin, all 72 counties, to not follow the law,” Racine County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Michael Luell said. Luell testified on Wednesday at an Assembly Meeting regarding his findings and said that charges be pursued against the commissioners who broke the law. The sheriff explained that videos of meetings of the commissioners in the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) showed that commissioners did know that they were doing violated Wisconsin laws. Luell stated in several of the meetings, the commissioners acknowledged that it was “illegal” to discontinue the practice of having a Special Voting Deputy to help people in assisted living facilities to cast their votes. Luell told The Wisconsin Daily Star in a statement that, “The Sheriff’s Office did forward charging recommendations to the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on November 3, 2021.” However, nothing has...

    Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich thinks the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office got the better end of the deal in spending $12,000 for two days of billboard advertising in Times Square in New York City to recruit deputies. That’s in spite of – or perhaps even because of – all the media attention the Big Apple campaign garnered due to a misspelling in the advertisement. “Washington” was originally spelled “Washinton,” before the ad agency responsible quickly corrected the typo. That amounted to lots of free publicity generated, Knezovich admitted, which seems to be paying off in the form of 10 New York City police officers contacting the Sheriff’s Office about its hiring process. “We’re very aggressive in what we do,” Knezovich said of his strategy to recruit deputies to his shorthanded department, including offering $15,000 hiring bonuses. The Times Square ad follows the Sheriff’s Office taking out billboards in Seattle, Portland, Denver and Austin, Texas. Knezovich said he placed the billboards in cities where elected officials have not supported their law enforcement agencies and people. Plans call for billboards in Southern California, Knezovich...
    The Santa Clara County jail system is seeing its largest surge in COVID-19 cases since a string of record-setting outbreaks in January, underscoring the ongoing infection risk in custody environments even amid wide availability of vaccines, including for the South Bay’s incarcerated population. Through Monday, there were 60 active cases in the county jails, with the majority reported at the Elmwood men’s jail in Milpitas, according to county data and accounts from family members of people being held in the jails. The biggest one-day surge of the last nine months was on Nov. 2, when 15 new in-custody infections were recorded. In the next five days, at least 45 new cases surfaced. A precise figure is not available because the online COVID-19 dashboard maintained by the sheriff’s office has a disparity between daily new cases and current active cases, meaning the surge could be a higher number that was offset by people coming off infection. A woman whose husband is being held in Elmwood’s M8, a dorm-style unit that has been hard hit by COVID-19 outbreaks since the start of...

    The Culpepper County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an attack that allegedly happened when a 15-year-old boy threatened a 14 year-old girl at knifepoint. Culpeper County High School administrators contacted the sheriff’s office on Thursday after a report from a student regarding an incident that happened the previous week. The report from a female student indicated that she was the victim of sexual harassment, unwanted touching and was threatened with a knife by another student, according to the high school. The female student reported that the 15-year-old boy had been “pressuring her for sex” and that he has repeatedly touched her inappropriately after multiple attempts to tell him to stop, according to the sheriff’s office.

                      by Debra Heine  Wisconsin’s Democrat Governor Tony Evers said on Tuesday that Racine County officials should file charges if they believe election laws were broken at a Racine nursing home. “It’s pretty simple,” Evers said during a news conference in Madison. “It’s not something that should be made more complex by the politics. Somebody screwed up, they should be prosecuted. Simple as that.” The Racine County Sheriff on Wednesday decided to take the governor’s suggestion to heart, and sent a felony criminal referral for members of the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) to prosecutor’s office. Sheriff Christopher Schmaling and Sgt. Michael Luell last week presented evidence at a press conference showcasing blatant violations of election fraud at the Mount Pleasant nursing home, including evidence of staffers committing voter fraud by stealing elderly residents’ votes. Convinced that the election fraud his investigation discovered in Racine was just the tip of the iceberg,  Schmaling called for a statewide investigation.  Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul, a Democrat, however, has refused to accept the sheriff office’s report. In a statement on Wednesday, the sheriff...

    A concert pianist turned himself in to South Carolina authorities after being accused of killing a local pet hospital staffer. On Wednesday, the Greenville County Sheriff's Office charged Zachary David Hughes, 29, with murder in connection to Christina Parcell's death. Parcell was found dead at her home on Oct. 13 with "multiple" stab wounds, Sheriff Hobart Lewis said at a press conference Thursday. The sheriff's office said it determined Hughes as the suspect from security footage of the neighborhood. "During the course of the investigation, investigators obtained physical evidence, which tied Hughes to the murder, and yesterday afternoon, Hughes turned himself in to authorities at the Greenville County Law Enforcement Center," the sheriff's office told the Washington Examiner.

    Florida law enforcement officials are being slammed for making demeaning social media posts mocking crime suspects and members of the public in an effort to build their social media following.  Sheriff's offices have become prolific social media content creators lately, but the posts, critics say, are now digital pillories for suspects who may never be found guilty.  A DailyMail.com investigation found that these desperate attempts to garner hundreds of thousands of followers - and potential voters - have exposed racist, sexist and humiliating content where suspects are made to look guilty even before the first court hearing, and some even display evidence not yet brought to court. Just last week in Palm Beach County, a man charged with aggravated assault and improper display of a firearm in July 2020, sued Sheriff Ric Bradshaw after he posted tweets mocking him and refused to delete them when the charges were dismissed.  The man claimed the posts caused 'mental anguish and hurt feelings' and is seeking punitive damages.  And while many of the posts began as public service announcements, the lure of huge...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A suspected serial rapist accused of numerous violent sexual assaults in Sacramento County between 2013-2014 has been arrested, authorities announced on Thursday. JD Wallace Simien, 40, of Sacramento County, was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail without bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday. READ MORE: CHP Grant To Put Brakes On Illegal Street Racing And SideshowsThe county Sheriff’s Office and county District Attorney’s Office announced Simien’s arrest came from authorities’ use of investigative genetic genealogy, which was a key tool in identifying Joseph James DeAngelo as the Golden State Killer and Roy Waller as the NorCal Rapist. “DNA technology is a great tool in our criminal justice system,” Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said in a statement. “DNA can not only be used to exonerate the innocent, but it is a powerful investigative tool for violent crimes that have grown cold because traditional investigative methods are unable to solve the case. In this case, detectives from the Sheriff’s Office and investigators from my office worked hand in hand in the investigation...
