The Butte County Sheriff’s Office will provide information and education regarding environmental issues and conservation concerns regarding off-highway vehicle use. The Sheriff’s Office, along with Butte County Search & Rescue will respond to emergency calls for service in and around these areas as needed.

Butte County Jail Evacuation

Oroville, CA- On Sunday, 2/12/17, at approximately 4:30 p.m., the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Jail Command Staff and Sheriff Kory Honea began an evacuation plan for the Butte County Jail due to the credible threat of potentially catastrophic damage to the Lake Oroville Dam Emergency Spillway.
All 578 inmates from the Butte County Jail were safely transported to the Santa Rita Jail, located in the city of Dublin, in Alameda County. This is the first time an evacuation order has been issued at the Butte County Jail. Approximately 80 personnel were involved in the evacuation and transportation to Alameda County. The Butte County Office of Education provided five buses, and assistance and transport vehicles were provided by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, and the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office. The California Highway Patrol assisted in escorting the caravan of vehicles used to transport the inmates to Alameda County.
Sheriff Honea is working closely with Cal Fire and The Department of Water Resources in a unified command to manage the situation and the inmates will return to the Butte County Jail when it is deemed safe for them to return. Friends and loved ones of inmates can call the Santa Rita Jail at (925) 551-6500 or can visit alamedacountysheriff.org for more information.

Oroville Missing Woman Returns Home Safely

Update:
On Wednesday, January 25, 2017, just before 2:30pm, Tina Marie Searcy returned home safe and uninjured. It appears Searcy decided to go on a camping trip without telling anyone. We are glad she is safe. The fact that she was able to go camping leads BCSO detectives to believe she was more ambulatory than initially described in the beginning of the investigation. We thank the public for their help in the search.
