3 Message From The Sheriff Members of the Board of Supervisors and Citizens of Santa Barbara County: It is with great pride that I present to you the Santa Barbara County Sheriff s Department Annual Report for The year was one of significant challenges, including major budget cuts, staff reductions and two devastating wildfires. However, the men and women of this agency overcame these challenges and rose to each occasion, proving once again that this Department is unparalleled as a public safety agency. Operating from 21 different work sites spread across nearly 2,800 square miles, they steadfastly carried on the Department s tradition of Keeping the Peace Since Jail overcrowding continued to be a significant problem during the year, due to our continuing lack of sufficient infrastructure and a court ordered population cap on the main jail. The Blue Ribbon Commission on Jail Overcrowding issued its final report and recommendations, which included the call to construct a new and much needed 308-bed jail in the north county. We took two giant steps toward making this new jail a reality by purchasing a building site as well as securing a conditional grant award of $56.3 million from the State s AB 900 program. We still have many hurdles ahead, including the need to obtain approximately $27 million to match the State s grant, but with the progress we ve made I feel that this long overdue project is finally on the road to achievement. The year was full of many other ups and downs. The tragic and untimely passing of Capital Projects Coordinator John Ford and Reserve Deputy Laura Cleaves were severe blows to the Department. Laura s death at the hands of a drunk driver reminds us of the fragile nature of life, and of how important our work to protect public safety is both through enforcement and prevention/education efforts. On a brighter note, no fewer than six of our employees were honored for their heroic endeavor to save lives on five separate occasions. Please see the Employee Awards section of this report for descriptions of what they and others did in 2008 that merited special recognition. Let me close by thanking everyone on the Department for their outstanding efforts over the past year. I also want to thank you our elected representatives and the citizens we serve for your tremendous support during these tough times. I am honored and proud to be your Sheriff. Sincerely, BILL BROWN Sheriff Coroner ~2~ sbsheriff.org

8 Emergency Preparedness Natural or man-made emergencies can happen quickly, without warning and have long-term consequences. The goal of emergency preparedness is to save lives, prevent injuries and protect people, animals, property and the environment and to facilitate recovery if an emergency occurs. The Santa Barbara County Sheriffs Department Emergency Preparedness and Planning Coordinator works to anticipate problems and propose possible solutions to minimize a disaster s damage. The Sheriff s Department is committed to emergency preparedness and planning through training, disaster drills, testing equipment, and partnering with other agencies. The fundamentals of emergency preparedness is taught at the Law Enforcement Academy, Custody Deputy Academy, Central Coast Law Enforcement Explorer Academy, and the Sheriff s Citizens Academy. The Sheriff s Department has partnered with local fire departments in teaching Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) courses. The Sheriff s Department has developed response plans from fires to floods to pandemics. These plans have been exercised in drills within the Department, with other agencies and with local communities. The Department is committed to collaborating with local, state and federal agencies as well as non-profit and other community based organizations in preparing today for tomorrow s disaster Emergency Preparedness Highlights Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) tabletop exercise with local, state and federal partners A lead agency in the Montecito Evacuation Drill Advanced ICS training with a mass fatality scenario for Department supervisors and management, with Public Health Department and county hospitals involvement Advanced ICS training with a major countywide incident scenario for Department supervisors and management; contract cities personnel also involved Prepared Gap and Tea Fire flood response plans with local, state and federal partners Assisted in preparation and facilitation of Bradbury Dam failure tabletop exercise with local, state and federal partners Provided law enforcement training in securing a mass vaccination center during a pandemic scenario for the City of Lompoc Red Cross Honors Emergency Planning Coordinator In 2008, the American Red Cross Santa Barbara Chapter presented the Trumpet Award to Sgt.

9 2008 Fires 2008 again found Santa Barbara County battling large-scale, devastating, human-caused fires. On July 1st the Gap Fire was started in brush off West Camino Cielo, high above the City of Goleta. As down canyon winds picked up, the fire quickly ran down the mountain placing over 12,000 homes and approximately 30,000 residents at risk. On November 13th, the Tea Fire began when smoldering abandoned bonfire coals were ignited by strong sundowner winds forcing the evacuation of over 5,000 homes and approximately 15,000 residents in the foothills of Santa Barbara and Montecito. Patrol deputies, members of the Special Enforcement Team and the all-volunteer Sheriff s Search & Rescue Team risked their lives during both fires to ensure the safety of threatened residents. For two days during the Gap Fire, Search & Rescue provided door to door evacuation notices in Goleta neighborhoods. The Team successfully evacuated more than 250 homes, helping hundreds to journey safely out of harm s way. During the Tea Fire s first night, Search and Rescue Team volunteers performed their duties facing a raging, wind-driven fire capable of consuming entire neighborhoods. As others retreated to safety, team members and deputies risked their lives to ensure that all in the fire s path were notified and escorted to safety. The successful Tea Fire evacuation, planned and executed by a largely volunteer force, was an exemplary Search and Rescue mission with more than 500 homes evacuated in five hours. The Santa Barbara County Air Support Unit, a combined unit of Sheriff s Department and Fire Department personnel and equipment, coordinated their responsibilities and evaluated the risks involved in fighting the Gap and Tea Fires from the air. The combined unit dropped water 113 times on the fires. Due to the Tea Fire s brutal intensity, the proximity to inhabited dwellings, and the need to provide fire personnel with strategic air support, it was evident to the Air Support Unit that nighttime water drops were necessary. Relying on their training and experience, these pilots courageously flew their helicopters in hazardous high wind conditions, navigating through darkness and smoke utilizing night vision goggles. These brave men continued to fight the fire until sundowner winds exceeded 75 mph and forced them to suspend operations. When it was determined safe to fly again, the Air Support Unit helicopters took to the air and made numerous additional water drops. The Sheriff s Department helicopters are equipped with computerized GIS mapping systems that computer map the perimeters of a burning wildland fire. This mapping provides county agencies with current information regarding the size, location and direction of travel of a wildland fire. County agencies use this information to determine where and when evacuation orders and warnings should be issued and lifted. While continuing to provide law enforcement service throughout areas of the county unaffected by fires, Sheriff s deputies assisted by other area law enforcement personnel, patrolled the evacuated areas, protecting homes and property from looters and other criminals seeking to take advantage of others misfortunes. Deputies later helped with the orderly repopulation of evacuated areas.

The Commission advocates utilizing a blended approach with six key recommendations: 1. Increase jail system capacity by building a 300-bed jail facility in the north county; 2. Invest in prevention, intervention and recovery programs that address key factors contributing to crime and imprisonment; 3. Invest in new and enhance existing community corrections programs; 4. Invest an initial $5.8 million per year in jail overcrowding prevention funding (for Recommendations 2 and 3); 5. Establish a Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) to focus on criminal justice system issues that may reduce jail overcrowding; and 6. Pursue and implement strategies to pay for these investments.

Planning for Success was designed to help inmates eliminate drug and alcohol use, establish a foundation for real long-term recovery, and reduce recidivism. Since 1996, the program has increased capacity to include intensive inpatient substance abuse treatment in four housing units. On average, 65% of inmates released violate the conditions of their release or return to custody with new charges. For participants in the Sheriff's Treatment Program in Santa Barbara County, only 38.8% (male) and 40.3% (female) re-violate after one year. Considering the cost of incarceration per inmate, this reduction means substantial savings. Graduates of the program participate in monthly alumni dinners where they are recognized for selected anniversary dates for sobriety. Many graduates have been out of custody for 8 to 10 years Custody Operations Bookings 2004 to ,168 18,406 18,074 18,252 18, ~16~ sbsheriff.org

18 The Helen Pedotti Inmate Learning Center at the Santa Barbara County Jail Opens Believing that there is truly hope for rehabilitation by providing academic and vocational training to incarcerated individuals, Mrs. Helen Pedotti donated $278,000 to fund and enhance educational opportunities for inmates. Mrs. Pedotti is a longtime community supporter who served as a member of the board and president of the Foundation for Santa Barbara Community College. Although the SBCC s Continuing Education Division has offered instruction in the jails since the early 1980 s, Mrs. Pedotti s donation has made it possible to reconfigure jail facility classrooms as a Multi-Media Learning Center. SBCC Adult Education Program also offers a special STEP/Jail Program Advisor which counsels individuals in the availability of opportunities for post-release follow up that is designed to encourage continued involvement in educational/ vocational programs. Education is often cited as a leading indicator of future success in the workforce and reduced recidivism. ServSafe Certification Program offered to Medium Security Inmates In 2008, the Culinary Arts Training Program was changed to a ServSafe Certification Program. The ServSafe program requires a combination of classroom and hands on work in the kitchen. The certification meets the mandated requirement for anyone seeking employment in the food service industry. Successful completion of the program allows an inmate upon release to apply for a job in the food service industry. The Santa Barbara Community College Adult Learning Program offers this course to inmates assigned to the Medium Security Facility. Alternative Sentencing Unit Transitions to GPS Monitoring The Electronic Monitoring option allows individuals to continue their employment or full time education while completing their court ordered sentence. Each participant wears an electronic monitoring device, which allows him or her to be monitored up to 24 hours a day. In October 2008, the unit transitioned from a Radio Frequency System (RF) to a Global Positioning System (GPS). GPS monitoring allows for more control of the offender with the ability to continually track their location. This increased level of monitoring has allowed the unit to accept out-of-county offenders into the program. Implementation of the new Jail Management System (JMS) The new Jail Management System (JMS) replaced the former Subject-in-Custody Automated Management (SAM) system and enabled the Sheriff s Department to better manage mandates and administrative needs that exceeded the capabilities of the previous system. The Jail Management System provides the Department with the ability to conduct real time tracking of inmate movement and records updates, thus reducing liability and improving research capabilities. The new system is integrated with other Sheriff s Department computer systems such as the Sheriff s Records Management System (RMS), Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), and Department of Justice (DOJ). This system also provides tracking and reporting for State and Federal mandates such as Social Security and the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP). The new state-of-the-art system will also enable the Department to integrate inmate information with other law enforcement agencies within Santa Barbara County should the need arise Annual Report ~17~
