Recent Contribution Activity
Modernized EOD vehicle - The Placer County Sheriff’s Office Explosive Ordinance Detail (EOD) responds to an average of 25 call-outs per year and frequently assists neighboring agencies on EOD mutual aid requests. Currently, our EOD team cannot respond to east slope incidents during inclement weather and is the last one of its kind in the region. The EOD equipment has become more diverse and heavier, with additional equipment requiring an increasingly high payload of EOD response vehicles.
Other agencies in the region have upgraded their vehicle, chassis, and equipment box.
2020 - 2021
Plate Carriers and Rifle Rated Armor - Truth 855 – Angel Armor - Two piece ceramic rifle plates will be used by the Field Operations Deputies and Sergeants when responding to high risk events across the County. The modular Plate System has dual strike faces, is ultra-lightweight with multi-hit capability which allows wearing of the armor all day long when faced with the possibility of a threat level greater than the normal vest would protect against by simply snapping in the second piece to be up and running in seconds.
Unmanned Aircraft System UAS (Drones) - Drone systems purchased and training to get pilots FAA certified. Drones Purchased: One DJI Matrice 210, One Parrot Anfi, Nine DJI Matic 2 Enterprise Duals, One DJI Air 2 with more coming as well as additional support equipment such as a Command Vehicle to be purchased for the UAS Program. The above video only partially demonstrates the capabilities of the drones with respect to clarity and range of the optics.
