Calaveras County Appreciation

National Volunteer Appreciation Week 2021
                   The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Volunteer programs are comprised of highly dedicated persons who provide a wide range of professional services. Each day volunteers perform duties including vacation house checks, clerical work, search and rescue activities, staffing Sheriff substations, assisting at Covid vaccination sites, and countless other duties that often go unrecognized.  By utilizing the thousands of volunteer hours per year, the Sheriff’s office is able to lessen the impact to the county’s general fund and make the most out of its limited budget.
Their efforts not only make the Calaveras County Sheriff’s office a better and more efficient workplace, but they also improve the quality of life for the citizens of Calaveras County.

Sheriff Implement’s Family Emergency Preplan Program
Emergencies involving lost or missing persons are understandably a stressful and traumatic occurrence. When the lost person has been diagnosed with special needs or disabilities, the stress level can be immense and at times overwhelming. Recognizing this, Sheriff DiBasilio will be implementing a new “Family Emergency Plan” program. The program focuses on gathering critical information prior to a lost person event. Before an emergency happens, families, loved ones and caregivers can sit down to gather information and complete the Developmental Disability and Special Needs Emergency Packet. Once completed, a copy of the plan could be kept in your car, at home, or shared with anyone (schools, adult day programs and daycare providers) who provides care or supervision for your child or dependent adult.
Completed plans can be mailed, emailed, or placed in the secure drop box located in front of the Sheriff’s Office headquarters, to the attention of: Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Records Division. Email: sheriffrecords@co.calaveras.ca.us or 1045 Jeff Tuttle Drive, San Andreas, CA 95249.
The plan will be kept on file for immediate dispersal to deputies and other resources that would be responding to search for the missing person, should the need arise.
Interested persons should contact Sgt. Greg Stark (209) 754-6500 for more information or go to the Sheriff’s website https://sheriff.calaverasgov.us/Records-Civil/Sheriff-Forms) to access and complete the form.   For full details, view this message on the web.
