This little girl got loose from her pen and Sarge jumped into action and caught her quick! She is up for adoption along with a bunch of other puppies from Ayla’s Acres No-Kill Animal Rescue! They have a pop up adoption kennel at the St Augustine Oulets!

IT’S DOG GONE CRAZY IN HERE! K9 Star came by to visit and Undersheriff Cline had his dog Banks in the office today too. Needless to say, while Banks wanted to play, Star wasn’t so sure. The Command Staff will get the names of the possible human partners next week, so we will hopefully have an announcement soon. 🤞🏻

That's A LOT of power utility vehicles. Florida Power and Light has a staging area near the St Augustine Airport, and they all just deployed at 8:30am, at shift change

While working a detail at the Red Cross post impact evacuee shelter at the Solomon Calhoun center, Deputy Goodman had a conversation with TG. During that conversation, TG mentioned that he only had the shoes on his feet and in dire need of work boots so he could go to work in his trade that he knows. Everything he had was lost in the flooded waters he escaped from.
Deputy Goodman was so moved by TG and his story, that he got someone to cover for him, slipped away and ran to the shoe store. He purchased a pair of waterproof work boots for TG out of his own pocket so he could return to the work force. TG was so overjoyed with happiness when Deputy Goodman handed the shoes to him. "I'm going to put a lot of miles on these today," TG said. Deputy Goodman, we couldn't be more proud of you. That's how you Take Care of People.

TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE: Members of our SVU, Internal Affairs, and Community Affairs units were out in the Fruit Cove area helping families clean up after Hurricane Irma yesterday. Not only do they investigate crimes and catch criminals, they cut down trees and clean up flooded homes too! Now that is "Taking Care of People!"

We found a hurricane evacuee in our Communications kitchen. Guess she needed a place to shelter from the storm. We're going to call her Irma.

Yesterday, the SJSO, the St. Johns County Fire Rescue and the St. Johns County Government Connection spent some time in Flager Estates and in Hastings handing out water and food to those who were hit the hardest by the flood waters. We even ran into a couple who got married on Sunday in the middle of the storm and wanted some pictures with us.

"These kids and their parents, who live in the Vilano Beach area, rode their bikes to our location just to give us multiple bottles of water, even when their home had no power...very nice family!" The kids told us it was their idea too! How amazing!! We love it when our citizens take a page out of our book and "Take Care of People" thanks so much for thinking of us, it was a very kind gesture.

Humans weren't the only ones we rescued during the storm... One of our bailiffs found these newborn kittens behind the courthouse yesterday during the tail end of Hurricane Irma and rescued them. After making sure they got a good meal, they found them a home with someone who can take care of them like a mother would and would keep them as members of her family.
Taking Care of People... and Kittens!!

Buoys like these are usually anchored to the ocean floor. Hurricane Irma washed this one ashore. And look, it still works!

We went to the St Augustine Wildlife Sanctuary today to assist with damaged cages; 1 female tiger and 1 female panther had to be sedated and moved, by hand to different enclosures

We understand there are some people who need to be on the roads right now - we also need you to be SAFE. If you are driving right now and come to a stoplight that is not working, use the intersection as a 4 way stop.
