Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office recruits volunteers for community work



LIVE OAK For four hours a week, Tim Loe teaches children about safety, looks for suspicious activity at people’s homes and reports safety violations at parks — all duties in the typical day of a sheriff’s deputy. Except he’s not a paid employee, he’s a volunteer with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office.

“It’s just out there having fun,” said Loe, a Mount Hermon resident and retired active duty and reserves police officer with the Armed Forces. “It keeps you in the law enforcement loop.”

The sheriff’s office has about 100 volunteers, and is recruiting for more. Its volunteer program, established in 1996 by

Onslow County Sheriff’s Office, NCIS incinerate seized drugs

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Members of the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit and the NCIS destroyed some drugs seized during criminal investigations that were no longer needed as evidence Wednesday.

Between the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office and the NCIS, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine, spice, bath salts and drug paraphernalia were disposed by using the OCSO Little Vulcan incinerator.

This incinerator was donated to the Sheriff’s Office by the Coastal Coalition for Substance Abuse Prevention and is used to destroy drugs that are no longer needed by the court for criminal prosecution of drug offenders.

Future ‘eye in the sky’ aids Sheriff’s Office

ASHEBORO — It moves in silently, seeking out targets and completing complicated missions, collecting evidence, all for use by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office. That is its job.

“It” is the Tecnam P92 Eaglet Light Sport, shared by three law enforcement agencies — in Randolph, Guilford and Alamance counties. This plane has been used by the three agencies for surveillance, drug interdiction, search and rescue, and crime scene investigation since 2009.

Detective Sgt. Ryan McClelland, who has been flying for 24 years, pilots the plane for Randolph County.

“We only use the plane in active investigations,” he said. “And we want the community to know that no tax dollars are paying for this plane and what it does. It is paid for entirely by using drug seizure funds.”

The plane has had some updates in recent years and an even bigger update is

APSU, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office partner to create mock crime scene for criminal justice students

Huddled with a group of Austin Peay State University criminal justice students, Mark Wojnarek finally asked the question they had all spent the better part of a half hour trying to solve.

“Are we looking at the scene of a crime,” Wojnarek, a senior investigator sergeant with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, asked. “Some crime scenes can be staged, so are we looking at a murder, or are we looking at a suicide?”

Students in Assistant Professor Dr. George Froggé’s criminal investigation course spent an afternoon at the University’s Morgan University Center Ballroom, pouring over a simulation of a possible crime scene after officers reported to what — on the surface -— appeared to be a person who took their life with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

Orleans Coroner’s Office faces pay lawsuit from fired death investigator

A death investigator fired this year by Orleans Parish Coroner Jeffrey Rouse’s office has filed a federal lawsuit accusing her former employer of improperly denying her overtime pay.

Jennifer Trigueros alleges that Rouse’s office misclassified her as an employee who was not entitled to extra compensation if she worked more than 40 hours a week.

The suit says that “most coroner’s offices in the state of Louisiana” pay those in her position overtime if they work more than 40 hours a week, something she routinely did whenever fatalities were reported at the end of her shift.

Trigueros’ lawsuit says she worked for Rouse’s office from Feb. 2, 2015, to Jan. 9, 2017. She claims she was fired after complaining on Facebook that an unidentified co-worker signing on for the day refused to take over investigating a fatality reported at the end of an overnight shift for Trigueros on New Year’s Eve 2016.
