SEPTEMBER HIGHLIGHTS
Deputy Mark Stasyuk Memorial Fishing Tournament
The 3rd Annual Deputy Mark Stasyuk Memorial Fishing Tournament was held on September 25th, at the Jellystone Tower Park Marina. Tournament participants rose before the sun to launch their boats and toss their lures into the Delta in attempt to catch the largest bass or striper fish.
Campers and observers enjoyed a wide variety of raffle prizes to bid on while eagerly waiting for the fish weigh-in announced by Angler's Press. Tournament participants and marina goers enjoyed a barbequed hotdog lunch provided by the Sheriff's Activities League.
Kids had a great time participating in the free kid raffle with prizes donated by the Sheriff's Toy Project. The weather was beautiful, the company was good and a great time was had by all.

Thank you to all who assisted in making this event possible, we look forward to seeing more fishing rods in the water next year!

S.H.O.C.K.
The S.H.O.C.K. program takes on a leadership role by partnering with community-based organizations, local businesses, and other youth-serving agencies to reach out to those youth considered at-risk for making poor choices in their lives.

Chronic absenteeism, continuous disruption to classroom learning, signs of experimentation with drugs and/or alcohol, as well as involvement with the gang lifestyle are considered behaviors that could lead to devastating life-long consequences.

This program is designed to:

  • Redirect negative behavior

  • Provide partnerships with law enforcement, the community, and schools

  • Increase understanding of the criminal justice system

  • Emphasize the legal consequences of violating the law
S.H.O.C.K. is a structured program that provides juveniles with incentives, team building activities, and motivates them through positive reinforcement.

If you would like to refer an at-risk juvenile, click on the link provided below.
If you're interested in having the opportunity to impact our youth in a positive way through the program, contact Deputy Veronica Cervantes at vcervantes@sacsheriff.com
