Feb 2017, Butte County transferred 578 inmates to Santa Rita when their jail was deemed unsafe due to the possible failure of the Oroville Dam Emergency Spillway. 80 Deputies were ordered to transport Butte County inmates and stay in Alameda County to supervise their inmates while housed at Santa Rita Jail. These deputies left their homes and loved ones in Butte County unaware of what they would return to because they had an oath and obligation to uphold...they became our partners, colleagues and extended family during this time.
The Camp Fire broke began 11/8/2018, it became the deadliest & most destructive wildfire in Ca history, the deadliest wildfire in the US since the Cloquet Fire in 1918 and is the sixth deadliest wildfire in US history to date burning 237.9 square miles in Butte County which has brought tragedy & devastation to the county as well as wiped out the entire town of Paradise.
We are seeking donations to help bring holiday cheer and normalcy to those impacted by adversity within this community. Our brothers and sisters in blue need our help as they attempt to repair the devastation within their community!
We have partnered with the Sheriff Ahern & The Deputy Sheriff's Association Sports Association to raise money to deliver bikes helmets & sports equipment to the children and families in Butte County.
Together we make a difference! Bikes & helmets will roughly cost $150, our goal is to deliver at least 100 bikes! The more we raise, the more smiles & cheer we will be able to infuse in Butte to let them know that they are not alone.
