Sheriff Mike Boudreaux would like to wish you a very Happy 4th of July this weekend and to remind everyone to play it safe when it comes to using fireworks and enjoying the great outdoors.
- Be aware of fireworks restrictions in the county and in your area. - Ignite only legal fireworks with the State Fire Marshal’s “Safe and Sane” seal.
- Only use fireworks in fireworks-approved areas. Maps are available at fireworks booths.
- Be responsible when igniting fireworks and stay away from dry grass or other flammable materials. - Use common sense and keep a safe distance from fireworks. - Have a bucket of water and a hose nearby.
- Do not shoot firearms in celebration of the holiday. Find another way to show your joy.
Please act responsibly for your own safety, the safety of your family and the safety of our community.
While we encourage you to enjoy our great outdoors, please take extra care around our lakes and rivers. Tulare County rivers continue to run very fast and very cold as the snow melts in the Sierra Nevada. Both the Tule River and the Kings River remain closed to recreational use.
The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office has responded to 8 fatal drownings and more than 25 swiftwater rescues in Tulare County’s rivers since April 14. Always remember that we are here to help you. Report crimes and suspicious activity to the Tulare County Sheriff's Office at 559-733-6218 or anonymously at 559-725-4194 or tcso@tipnow.com.

Sheriff Boudreaux to swear in eight Deputies tonight at the Police Academy graduation at 6 pm tonight at the Visalia Nazarene Church. #tcso #explorers #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff

Congratulations to Lt. Joseph Campos!
He graduated Thursday from the Los Angeles Police Department Leadership Program. Cpt. Chris Wenzinger and Cpt. Larry Micari, both alumni of the program, attended his graduation at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles.
Since the program began more than 20 years ago, many personnel from the Tulare County Sheriff's Office have graduated from the program including Sheriff Mike Boudreaux.
He continues to send members of his command staff to the program so they can be more effective leaders in the department.
Lt. Campos said he learned a lot about himself during the 4-week intensive course.
"I learned that there are numerous ways to lead people but it is not about the leader," he said. "It is about laying the groundwork for their success, and then standing back and letting them shine."

Sheriff Mike Boudreaux converted a storage area at the Adult Pre-Trial Facility into a classroom, added two driving simulators to another part of the room and will soon add the use of force simulator to the mix.

Driving simulators help prepare deputies for scenarios on the road that they face every day as they head to a scene to help someone in need, Sheriff Boudreaux said. “Simulator training is exceptionally effective,” he said.
It can be streamlined to train for specific causes of deputy-involved vehicle incidents. These well-designed driving simulators can improve deputies’ reaction time and response times. “It’s an affordable and effective tool for training deputies because it puts them in what feels like real-life danger without liability,” Sheriff Boudreaux said. #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #californiasheriffs #explorers #tularecountysheriffexplorer

First day on the job
On his first full day on the job, the Sheriff's newest K-9, Tex, and his handler, Dep. Jacob Stark, made an appearance Wednesday at the Tulare Noon Kiwanis Club meeting at Compadres Bar and Grill.
Tex is a 15-month-old Dutch Shepherd that is cross trained in protection and narcotics detection.
Along with Dep. Tony Rodriguez and his K-9, Jack, Dep. Stark demonstrated how they train their dogs for protection.
Tex and Jack are two of the Sheriff's 13 K-9s. While most of them serve as protection dogs on patrol and help apprehend suspects when needed, two other K-9s sniff out contraband in the detention facilities and another K-9 serves as a narcotics detection dog. #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #k9 #protectiondog

Sheriff Mike Boudreaux has added two fugitives to his Top 10 Most Wanted Criminals in Hiding. They are Ulises Medina and Homero Palomino Ontiveros.
They are wanted in connection with a string of armed robberies across southern Tulare County, in Bakersfield and Delano and even as far away as Fremont, Nebraska.
Both fugitives are considered armed and dangerous.
If you know their whereabouts, please contact the Tulare County Sheriff's Office at (559) 733-6218 or anonymously at (559) 725-4194 or tcso@tipnow.com. #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #fugitives #top10 #portervillepolicedepartment #delanopolicedepartment

Sheriff Mike Boudreaux and Porterville Police Chief Eric Kroutil announced during a press conference Monday that five arrests were made during a joint investigation of armed robberies at businesses throughout Tulare County, within the city limits of Porterville, Lindsay, Bakersfield and Delano and as far away as Fremont, Nebraska.
Following a string of armed robberies at businesses targeted by violent and dangerous offenders, the two agencies began working together and formed a task force to identify and apprehend these suspects connected to these brazen armed robberies.
Each robbery was the same: 3-4 armed suspects entered the business wearing masks and gloves. In an organized, methodical and well-planned manner, they tactically cleared the store with assault rifles and pistols out, scanning for any patrons or owners.
In English and Spanish, they demanded money and shouted, “Get on the ground.” All victims complied.
With victims on the ground, they helped themselves to the cash register. In some instances, personal property such as cell phones and wallets were stolen.
Then they fled in a stolen getaway vehicle which law enforcement found abandoned nearby. From there, suspects entered another vehicle later identified as a Silver 2009 Chevy Impala LTZ with chrome wheels.
This vehicle is still outstanding and Sheriff Boudreaux asks the public’s assistance for information.
More than $250,000 was taken during 14 armed robberies over 15 months. Twelve were in Tulare County which includes four in Porterville and two in Lindsay, one in Bakersfield and one in Delano. There was one armed robbery in Fremont, Nebraska and one attempted burglary/theft of an ATM machine in Dodge County, Nebraska.
Anyone with information to offer is encouraged to contact the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office at (559) 733-6218 or anonymously at (559) 725-4194 or tcso@tipnow.com. “All agencies have really shown how working together has made our communities safer,” he said. “We take these cases very seriously.”
Two wanted suspects are Ulises Medina and Homero Palomino Ontiveros.

Cpt. Larry Micari, Lt. Harold Liles, Jr., and Lt. Al Galafate joined other staff at the Pixley Substation Friday to wish "Happy Birthday" to one of our finest.
Joe Bailey, pictured center, a dedicated Volunteer in Patrol out of the Pixley Substation, recently turned 81. Before he was a volunteer, he served 36 years as a Reserve Deputy for the Tulare County Sheriff's Office.
For close to 50 years, he has served Tulare County, said Cpt. Larry Micari. He remembers earlier in his own career going down to the Pixley Substation when Joe Bailey was on duty.
"That station was under control," Cpt. Micari said.
Sometime in the late 1990s, Bailey transitioned to the Volunteers on Patrol. In a marked unit and volunteer uniform, he patrols business properties and dairies and farms.
"We are the eyes and ears for the Sheriff's Office," he said.
Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said he is very grateful to Bailey for his dedication to the department and to the communities in the southern part of Tulare County.
Before Bailey retired, he was also an on-call fireman for the Tulare County Fire Department. He often wore his fireman shirt underneath his deputy uniform, in case his other skills were needed.
At his birthday party Friday, Lt. Al Galafate remembered responding with him to a traffic accident. It was a hectic scene and after a few minutes, Lt. Galafate said he lost sight of Bailey.
Then he noticed him by his vehicle. He was taking off his shirt to uncover his other uniform. Next, he grabbed a hose and put out the car fire.
"He was like Superman," he said. #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #pixley #tularecountyfiredept

Sheriff Boudreaux is pleased to announce that the third human trafficking suspect, Mia McNeil, turned herself in Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017, in Los Angeles.
She was transported to Tulare County and booked at the Adult Pre-Trial Facility Wednesday afternoon.
For her participation in the crime ring, McNeil, 32, of Los Angeles, was charged with: Grand theft auto, Identity theft and Receiving stolen property, with an Enhancement for having been to state prison within five years of the new offenses.
After an extensive 6-month investigation, Sheriff Boudreaux along with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department and the Attorney General's Office announced last week that more than 50 charges were filed against McNeil, Quinton Brown and Gerald Turner.
They are accused of profiting from exploiting juvenile and young adult females in the illegal sex trade; identity theft; and luxury vehicle thefts. Many of the victims were juveniles from Tulare County.
As of Wednesday, all three suspects are in custody in Tulare County jails. Sheriff Boudreaux said he is pleased with the collaborative law enforcement efforts in this case.
“To Californians, be proud of the law enforcement serving the citizens of this state because today is a win for the good guys,” he said. “Sexually exploiting young people for financial gain is a crime against humanity. We will continue our vigilance to aggressively seek out those suspects who endanger our children and who seek to use human beings for their criminal gain.”
