The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of a grant from the State of California Alcoholic Beverage Control, will be conducting multiple operations at numerous random business locations in El Dorado County in the near future to stop the illegal sales of alcoholic beverages to under age patrons.

These operations utilize IMPACT inspections, minor decoy operations, and shoulder tap operations, in an effort to deter businesses from selling alcoholic beverages to minors and underage patrons.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is committed to total care for our community and total enforcement on crime and criminals.  These types of operations are another valuable tool we utilize to meet the expectations of our citizens

Move In Event

For Immediate Release

Sergeant Anthony Prencipe

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) will be assisting a member of our community this morning by moving him into a home. Keith is a Navy Veteran who was seen by one of our Patrol Sergeants picking up trash in the Safeway parking lot of Cameron Park.  When contacted, he told the Sergeant that he was cleaning up trash “because it was the right thing to do”.  That Sergeant later became the supervisor of our Homeless Outreach Team. During the course of duties, the HOT unit found that Keith had been homeless for four years. The HOT unit collaborated with Veteran Affairs, Veterans Services, Only Kindness of Placerville, and other programs to house Keith at Eskaton Lincoln Manor on Mother Lode Drive in Placerville.  Furnishings and other donations have been made to provide Keith with everything necessary to move in.

The move in event is planned for Monday, November 20, 2017, at 0900 hours, at 6600 Mother Lode Drive in Placerville.

Threat towards local High School

For Immediate Release

Sergeant Anthony Prencipe

On November 15, 2017, The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office was notified of threats made by a student, threatening the safety of Oak Ridge High School. Upon receiving this information School Resource Officers worked in conjunction with Oak Ridge High School and detectives to ensure the safety of our schools and determine if the threat was credible.  The suspect was identified and interviewed. Several witnesses were also identified and interviewed.

The suspected student was arrested for Penal Code 422(a)- criminal threats and booked into El Dorado County Juvenile Hall. Due to the suspects age, his identification will not be provided.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office takes any threats towards our schools and community seriously. Currently, there are no other known or credible threats to Oak Ridge High School or any other schools. As this threat was reported after school hours, Oak Ridge High School was not placed in lock down and classes are regularly scheduled for November 16.
