Just after 12:00 am on the morning of March 15, 2018 Marin County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Zirkle was responding to a 911 call. While in route, Deputy Zirkle lost control of his vehicle on SR-1 in rural west Marin County. The vehicle went off the right side of the road and collided with a tree. Despite lifesaving efforts, Deputy Zirkle passed away at Petaluma Hospital from injuries he sustained in the fatal collision.

In 2016, the profession of law enforcement, and our nation, lost 135 police officers in the line of duty.

May 2017 marks the 55th year by which our nation will pay tribute to the men and women of our local, state and federal peace officers. National Police Week is an annual event, conceived from “Police Day”, which was created in 1962, when President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation, designating May 15 as a time in which our nation would pause, gather, and most of all, to remember, those brave men and women who gave their final breath for the sake of justice.
Once a year we reach out to the businesses in our local community asking you for your support. Annually we look at how we can increase our impact in our community, and we continually strive to outdo our previous year. Your support allows us to make a bigger impact in the community we both share. Here is your chance to join the Marin County PA’s community outreach mission.
We proudly protect our communities, children, and families, despite the difficult year the brave men and women of Law Enforcement has had to face. It is not an easy job, but we wear our badge with a humble pride and seek to make the community we share a safer place to live and work. That’s why I am asking for your help.
