The Tulare County Sheriff's K-9 Unit received a generous donation in the amount of $8,300 from the Small Town Cruizers during their monthly car show Saturday at the Tulare Outlet Mall.
Bob Riggi, president of the car club, said members raised the money for the K-9 Unit during its annual car show in September.
"It's for a good cause and it benefits all of us," he said. "We're going to buy a K-9 for the Sheriff's Office."
Cpt. Mike Watson thanked the Small Town Cruizers.
"On behalf of Sheriff Mike Boudreaux, I gladly accept this generous donation," he said. "We will name the next dog 'Cruizer' after the Small Town Cruizers."
Sheriff's K-9s are purchased with donations from the community while the Sheriff's Office pays for their training. Total cost to purchase a K-9 and train it for patrol is approximately $13,000.
K-9s assigned to patrol are trained for protection. In dangerous situations, K-9s keep deputies out of harm’s way. Often, suspects will surrender just knowing there’s a K-9 ready to respond. However, ordering a K-9 to pursue a suspect is a last resort, Cpt. Watson said. #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #k9 #policedogs #carclub #smalltowncruizers

Sheriff seeks suspect responsible for battery on a peace officer
We need your help getting the word out about a suspect on the loose who assaulted a deputy.
We are looking for Luis Roberto Cimentel, 27, of Orosi.
At 11:10 p.m. Thursday, deputies contacted the suspect in the area of First Drive and Cutler Drive in Cutler. The suspect gave them conflicting information regarding his true name. Deputies utilized resources to discover his true name and date of birth. A dispatcher later advised that Cimentel had an active Be On the Lookout for PC 836/273.5.
At that time, the suspect fled on foot, deputies gave chase and caught the suspect. While attempting to arrest him, the deputies were injured. Due to the injury, the suspect became combative and fled the scene. Cimentel could not be located and is currently outstanding.
The assault resulted in a deputy being injured.
If you know his whereabouts, please contact the Tulare County Sheriff's Office immediately at (559) 733-6218 or anonymously through our TipNow Program at (559) 725-4194 or tcso@tipnow.com.

Almost 400 men and women took a physical agility test as the first of many steps to become correctional deputies.
Sheriff Boudreaux said he is very pleased to see how many people applied and their enthusiasm to work for law enforcement.

Many applicants expressed a long-standing desire to work for law enforcement while others said it was Sheriff Boudreaux's vision for law enforcement that has inspired them to apply for the job.

The physical agility test consists of the following:
- 1.5 mile run in under 16 minutes - 26 full sit ups in under 2 minutes
- 20 full push-ups in under 2 minutes
- 100-yard dash in under 30 seconds
- Drag a 165 pound weighted dummy 30 feet in under 30 seconds
After applicants pass the physical agility test, they will take a written test in two weeks.
If they pass the written test, they move on to an oral panel where they'll be interviewed by Sheriff's Office personnel.

The Sheriff’s Farm, located next to the Bob Wiley Detention Facility, provides home grown meat and fresh vegetables and locally grown fruit for inmate meals.
The farm saves the department more than $1 million a year.
In 2015, Sheriff Boudreaux decided to add chickens to the farm to provide the 2,000 eggs needed a day for inmate breakfasts. He asked Tom Guinn to build mobile chicken coops and pens that rotate around the fields. These 2,400 chickens save the Sheriff’s Office $100,000 a year.
Inmates care for and feed the animals, collect the eggs, and grow the vegetables. They wash the vegetables and help prepare the meals in the kitchen at the Bob Wiley Detention Facility.
This farm to table method of cooking provides nutritious and tasty meals such as chili verde.
Locally grown fruit with imperfections is donated by area packing sheds. Inmates go through the fruit and choose the best ones, saving the Sheriff’s Office more than $350,000 a year.
Inmates get fresh tasting meals at a cost savings to the department while they learn skills which could help them get a job once they are out of custody. Sheriff Boudreaux says the Farm is a win-win for taxpayers and inmates alike.

As an expert in the field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Sheriff's Cpl. William Seymour spoke during the 2017 Drone World Expo this week in San Jose.
Cpl. Seymour has become the sought-after source of information regarding UAVs and law enforcement during his one year as a full-time drone operator at the Tulare County Sheriff's Office,

He credits his success to Sheriff Mike Boudreaux’s forward thinking approach to fighting crime and responding to emergencies. "Sheriff Boudreaux envisions applications for UAVs far beyond industry standards," Cpl. Seymour said.
For example, Sheriff Boudreaux is building the department’s UAV program as part of the Sheriff’s Patrol division in order to have drones in the field, ready to respond immediately while other agencies are building their UAV programs around their air units.
At the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office, UAVs and drone operators are embedded with the patrol units at each of the Sheriff’s five substations: Visalia, Headquarters, Pixley, Orosi and Porterville.

Much like the K-9 handlers and their canine partners, deputies with extra training as drone operators can immediately deploy to the scene of a crime or a report of a lost child. “Critical response time is not lost,” Cpl. Seymour said. “Now, other agencies are expanding their UAV programs in the same way we are doing it for rapid deployment.” At the Drone World Expo, Cpl. Seymour was also part of a panel discussion regarding the future of emergency and disaster response using UAVs. He provided input to UAV industry leaders during the expo so they can tailor equipment to suit the needs of first responders.

way to go @tularesheriff #EndDomesticViolence #Repost @tularesheriff ・・・
Sheriff's Pixley patrol deputies were recently recognized by Family Services of Tulare County for their work in responding to reports of domestic violence. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Domestic violence affects one in four women and one in seven men.
Patrol Deputies are the first responders to 911 calls for domestic violence and other crimes. They are the ones who de-escalate the situation and help the victims.
Sheriff Boudreaux takes a zero-tolerance approach to domestic violence offenders and dedicates resources to bringing these offenders to justice.
A full-time Sheriff's detective follows up with domestic violence calls for service and domestic violence suspects at large may be referred to the Sheriff's CATTCH Unit (County Apprehension Team Tracking Criminals in Hiding).
In regard to domestic violence cases, the Sheriff's Office works in partnership with the District Attorney's Office, Probation, Family Services, HHSA. Domestic Violence is a pattern of abusive behavior in a relationship that is used by one partner to establish power and control over another partner.
Abusers use fear and intimidation, often including the threat or use of violence, to establish and maintain control.
Domestic violence can include physical, sexual, emotional, economic, and psychological abuse. Some signs of an abusive relationship include:
Exerting strict control (financial, social and/or appearance).
Needing constant contact including excessive texts and calls.
Emotional abuse including insulting a partner in front of other people.
Extreme jealousy.
One partner showing fear around the other partner.
Isolation from family and friends.
Unexplained injuries or explanations that don’t quite add up.
Report crimes and suspicious activity to the Tulare County Sheriff's Office at (559) 733-6218 or anonymously through our TipNow Program at (559) 725-4194 or tcso@tipnow.com.

Sheriff Mike Boudreaux continues his commitment to meet with the rural and mountain communities in Tulare County.
On Monday, he spoke during the town hall meeting in Three Rivers at the Veterans Memorial Building. Also in attendance from the Sheriff’s Office was Undersheriff Robin Skiles, Cpt. Cheri Lehner, Lt. Joe Campos, Dep. Mark Frick and Volunteer in Patrol Bob Basham.
Sheriff Boudreaux shared what’s new at the Sheriff’s Office with the crowd of approximately 75 community members.
Questions from the audience concerned the Sheriff’s view of a Sanctuary State, marijuana laws and enforcement and the Sheriff’s Aviation Support Unit.
Sheriff Boudreaux opposes the Sanctuary State Senate Bill 54 because it allows violent offenders to escape justice. Restricting collaboration between law enforcement agencies is a bad idea, he said.
There are people living in Tulare County who are afraid to report crimes for fear of deportation. “We are here for the people who live here,” Sheriff Boudreaux said. “My focus is on public safety.”
The Sheriff’s Office just unveiled two new Cessna airplanes. The Cessna 182, named Wren after the first deputy killed in the line of duty back in 1889, will be the Sheriff’s eyes in the sky to assist patrol deputies on the ground.
The Cessna 206, named Tribute to honor the fallen, will be used for inmate transportation, clandestine marijuana detection investigations, search and rescue operations and high profile investigations.
“We are the only agency in the western United States with UAVs and drone operators assigned to patrol,” he said. “Our very own Cpl. William Seymour is the nation’s expert in unmanned aerial vehicle technology for law enforcement.”
At the Sheriff’s Office, drone usage is mission specific for finding a lost child, an at risk adult, for SWAT details and evidence collection. They are not used for surveillance. #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #uav #threerivers #townhall

Wear pink today!
Sheriff Mike Boudreaux and members of his staff are wearing pink Tuesday in recognition of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In unity with breast cancer patients throughout the county, the Sheriff's Office wears pink to honor them and to recognize their struggle.
Pictured with the Sheriff are members of the Sheriff's Business Office, Records Department and Employee and Public Relations Unit. #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #breastcancerawareness #pink

Sheriff Mike Boudreaux presented recently retired Captain Larry Micari with a plaque Monday in recognition of his 22 years of service at the Tulare County Sheriff's Office. "We are so sorry to see you leave," Sheriff Boudreaux said to Cpt. Micari. "I wish you all the best in your retirement." Cpt. Micari was born and raised in Tulare and worked for the Farmersville Police Department while he attended the Tulare-Kings Police Academy.
In 1995, he was hired at the Sheriff's Office and worked in Headquarters Patrol. From there, he served in the Agricultural Crimes Unit.

In 1998, he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant and was assigned to the Bob Wiley Detention Facility. Next, he served as a Sergeant in Orosi and later as a K-9 Sergeant.

His K-9 partner's name was Bear.
He also worked in Internal Affairs and in 2005, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and was assigned to Pixley Patrol.
Cpt. Micari later worked in investigations and Patrol Support Services (Mutual Aid and Search and Rescue). He was promoted to the rank of Captain in January of 2015. "All my assignments had their high moments but K-9 was a blast," Captain Micari said. "The Ag Unit was great, too. I enjoyed working with our local farmers." #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #farmersville #tulare #k9

During a BBQ luncheon, Sheriff Mike Boudreaux thanked the workers who are constructing the new South County Detention Facility.
Progress is going well and on Thursday, the State of California Board of State and Community Corrections, known as the BSCC, conducted an inspection of a completed cell in a housing unit.
These inspectors will return in the future as more of the facility is completed.
The project completion date for the South County Detention Facility is June of 2018.
Having a jail in Porterville will save officers precious response time, said Sheriff Mike Boudreaux. Other agencies are excited that they will not have to commute an hour to the Adult Pre-Trial Facility north of Visalia to book suspects from the southern part of Tulare County.
“That really means more safety for the community,” he said.
This 100,000 square-foot facility will have 510 beds. The contractor is Bernard’s Construction out of Southern California.
The South County Detention Facility will include the following:
- Transitional housing for medical/mental health inmates
- Full-service kitchen
- Booking facility
- Classes - Bakery
- Storage
- Administration #tcso #tularecounty #tularecountysheriff #californiasheriffs #bscc #porterville #detentions #jails #correctionaldeputies #bernardsconstruction #vanir
