San Bernardino County Sheriff Department Captain Ross Tarangle, Commander of Needles’ Colorado River Station (standing, foreground) speaks to community members and representatives of the city of Needles and Needles Unified School District during a ‘Coffee with a Cop’ session Dec. 19 at the Wagon Wheel Restaurant. More than two dozen attended the session in the Wagon Wheel’s conference facilities. “Great conversation today …” said Tarangle via Twitter. “Thank you to the community for your support.” Other law enforcement personnel present include Deputy Schrotberger, county Det. Tim Preston, city Det. Brandon Abell, Sgt. Caronna (standing, background), Deputies Yates and Hillebrand (seated behind the captain) and (not pictured) Sgt. Pat Murch. Items covered included safety at the local dog park; community volunteer programs (visit for applications and details); and phone numbers for contacting the sheriff department: for all emergencies dial 9-1-1; to report a crime not in progress or to request a deputy call the sheriff’s dispatch center at 760-956-5001. The CRS business line is 760-326-9200. Sgt. Murch reported CRS personnel had donated 11 bicycles and a pile of presents to Vista Colorado Elementary School students the day before the Coffee with a Cop event.
