Santa Rosa Police Department (SRPD):
On Sunday, SRPD responded to a mutual aid request, sending a dedicated team of law enforcement to Del Norte County to assist with the Smith River Complex Fires. The fire, which has prompted widespread evacuations and required multi-agency coordination, received a boost with the deployment of six police officers, two sergeants, and two dispatchers. SRPD expects to continue providing patrols to deter potential looters, maintaining traffic control to facilitate the evacuation process, and efficient emergency dispatching aid through at least August 24.
