Protected and Served


I wanted to take this opportunity to express my deepest thanks and gratitude to Deputy Seth Woodill and Sgt. Marty Rose of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department. These gentlemen responded quickly, efficiently, and very kindly to my mental health emergency, and for their kindness and compassion I will always be thankful. The Sheriff’s Dept. must be very proud to have men of such integrity and willingness to help. I am very impressed, and feel great knowing we are protected and served by some of the finest men and women out there.
