SCCSAB Contributions: How We Have Helped Our Sheriff's Office

The SCCSAB keeps an ever-growing list of ways and means to further assist our Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office to perform their duties with the utmost effiency and safety. We have provided many items, including the items listed below.

Testimonial: A Thank You from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Underwater Search and Rescue Unint
The high-tech very expensive FLIR was purchased by the SAB for the Sheriff's Helicopter. See it in action!


Thermal Binocular

The ELCAN PhantomIR Thermal Binocular is a technically advanced device for detection, observation, and perimeter security. Utilizing a high-resolution thermal detector, the PhantomIR is the premier uncooled thermal observation device in the industry, and allows users to observe the heat signatures of people and objects at extreme ranges in daytime or at night and through smoke, fog or camouflage.



Search and Rescue Rope System

The Santa Clara County Search and Rescue Team is made up of highly dedicated violunteers. They requested a total of three new rope systems. One system is to replace their oldest rope system and the other two systems are to increase their supply of gear to handle medium to large operations. The new rope system will be used for vertical rappelling rescues and will replace an aging rope system that is starting to fray. The new rope system will bring SCCSSAR up to current safety standards.



Twenty New ICOM Radios

The new radios will replace existing radios that no longer have communication capability in rural terrain. The new radios will also have interoperability capabilities which will enable SCCSSAR to communicate with other public safety entities.

Bail Out bags

In December of 2006, the Sheriff’s Advisory Board made Christmas very special to our personnel by purchasing and distributing “Bail Out” bags to all the sworn personnel within the department. This year the SAB decided it was time to play Santa again and purchased and distributed bags to those individuals who had been hired between December 2006 and current. Thanks to Steve Hunt, President of the Advisory Board, and the other members of the SAB, every sworn personnel on the Sheriff’s Office now has a "Bail Out" bag compliments of the SAB.
