Public Safety

Public safety is seen by some as the most important role of local government. In the County this includes providing sheriff and fire services to all the unincorporated areas and many of the cities; protecting beachgoers; rescuing stranded and lost hikers, traffic accident victims, persons who have fallen into flood control channels; treating medical emergencies; and prosecuting, defending and sentencing those charged with crimes.
