Please join us in keeping Deputy Juan M. Ruiz's family and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers. Unfortunately, Deputy Ruiz succumbed to his injuries sustained on Saturday.

“It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the passing of Deputy Juan “Johnny” Ruiz #S2212. He succumbed to the injuries sustained on Saturday at the hands of a violent predator.
Deputy Ruiz proudly served this community with courage and conviction. His loss is a tragedy for our profession and our community.
We stand strong with great appreciation for his service and pray for his family during this unimaginable sacrifice and loss.
I am committed to pursuing justice for Deputy Ruiz to the fullest extent of the law against the suspect. Nothing less is acceptable.”
Sheriff Paul Penzone

OC Sheriff Highway Interdiction Team makes back-to-back fentanyl busts

A large amount of narcotics recently being smuggled into Southern California was intercepted and confiscated by the OC Sheriff’s Highway Interdiction Team (HIT).

Over two days, the team initiated traffic stops that resulted in pulling 81.4 pounds of methamphetamine and 115,400 fentanyl pills off the street.

HIT deputies first stopped a vehicle heading northbound on the 5 freeway on Sept. 28. Narcotics detection K-9, Re*****on, alerted on the vehicle and deputies found 81.4 pounds of methamphetamine and 105,000 fentanyl pills hidden in the floorboards.

The following day, on Sept. 29, deputies stopped another vehicle traveling northbound on the 5 freeway and narcotics detection K-9, JC, alerted to the presence of drugs in the vehicle. Deputies found and confiscated 10,400 fentanyl pills on that stop.

The Highway Interdiction Team is responsible for patrolling the freeway thoroughfare and proactively identifying and interrupting drug trafficking activity.

Deputy Ledesma from our Ojai Station spotted a local Cub Scout selling popcorn outside of the grocery store today. Low and behold, the scout has aspirations of becoming a police officer. He got to see the inside of the patrol unit, talk about the scouts and also made a sale! We love seeing our community members!

Best of luck to Joker and Rico as they begin their formal training to become members of the Essex County Sheriff's Department #K9 Unit

It's the First Day of School for our two newest K9s Joker and Rico! These young pups begin their initial patrol training with the Boston Police Academy today. This rigorous training lasts 14 weeks and will cover a multitude of K9 skills including tracking, area searches, crowd control, and evidence recovery. Rico is a 17-month-old German Shepherd who has been paired with our newest K9 handler Officer Corey Dever. Joker is a 15-month-old Belgian Malinios who has been paired with new K9 handler Officer Kyle Kidger. Once these dogs complete this training, they will move on to the narcotics school where they will certify in approximately 9 different narcotic odors.

Please join us in praying for a full and speedy recovery for the Washington County Sheriff's Office deputy struck by an impaired driver early Saturday morning

Media Release: Deputy Struck and Injured by Impaired Driver

On Saturday, September 4, 2021, at 2:53 a.m., two deputies with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office were completing a DUII investigation on SW 185th Avenue, just north of SW Blanton Street, in the community of Aloha. They arrested an adult female suspect and one deputy was placing her in the back seat of the patrol car when the patrol car was struck from behind by a truck traveling at a high rate of speed.

One deputy was able to get out of the path of the truck, but the other was struck and thrown to the ground about six feet away. She was treated at the scene by Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Metro West Ambulance and transported by ground ambulance to a local trauma center. The female adult in custody was not injured and later provided a breath sample which exceeded the legal limit.

Beaverton Police officers immediately responded and began investigating the crash involving our deputy. The adult male driver of the truck was arrested.

The injured deputy has been employed by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office for only 14 months, but previously worked in corrections in another state. She also serves her country as a member of the United States Army National Guard. The deputy has now been released from the hospital and is recovering at home. She has asked for privacy. As such, we will not be identifying her at this time. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is touched by the outpouring of community support and concern for our deputy.

This crash is a stark reminder of the dangers of impaired driving. Last night and throughout this holiday weekend, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with other local and state law enforcement agencies in a targeted DUII enforcement mission.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to keeping impaired drivers off the road. As part of our commitment, all of our patrol deputies underwent refresher training in DUII enforcement last month. Recently, two of our deputies were recognized for their excellence in the field by the Oregon DUII Multi-Disciplinary Training Task Force. One was recognized as the 2020 DUII Enforcement Officer of the Year. Another deputy was recognized as the 2020 Drug Recognition Expert of the year. More information will be provided tomorrow on our social media.
