NEWS RELEASE. Application to Volunteer and Serve.

Sheriff Christina Corpus is launching the Community Advisors for Responsible Engagement (CARE) Program to engage the public around important issues facing our community. This program will provide a consistent opportunity for the Sheriff and her leadership team to engage with individuals, small businesses, and community-based organizations. The CARE Program will enable community members to hear about ongoing initiatives, exchange ideas, discuss neighborhood specific concerns and make the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office more accessible and accountable to the community. That, in turn, will foster greater trust, transparency, and strengthen public safety.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to reviewing your responses. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at: SheriffCorpusCare@gmail.com
Sheriff Christina Corpus Launches “CARE” Program to Foster Community Engagement and Build Trust
This program is not to be confused with the CARES Program in Half Moon Bay and on the Coastside
City Half Moon Bay and San Mateo County Sheriff’s Innovative Crisis Assistance Response & Evaluation Services (CARES) Program is Expanding to Whole Coast: Tunnel to Moonridge
NEWS RELEASE. From the City of Half Moon Bay’s eNews on July 14th, 2021,
Effective July 19, the Crisis Assistance Response & Evaluation Services (CARES) program is expanding to respond to calls across the entire mid-Coast, to include the area from the Tom Lantos Tunnels (Devil’s Slide) to just south of Half Moon Bay, including the Moonridge apartments outside the City limits. CARES provides the Coastside community with an alternative response to mental health-related 911 calls, responding to low-level, nonviolent calls involving welfare checks, suicidal thoughts, and other mental health distress, and substance abuse issues. All calls still go through 911, where County Public Safety Communications dispatches the appropriate service level based on the actual situation. More information about the program can be found on the City’s CARES website or by contacting Assistant City Manager Matthew Chidester at email@example.com.
