This movie was made by the Sheriff’s Office. It is in color, silent, and lasts about twelve and a half minutes. It appears to be some sort of promotional movie made to show off functions and equipment of the Sheriff’s Office. It is not dated but internal evidence indicates it was probably made in the mid 1940’s. It includes staged scenes of criminal division motorcycle deputies responding to a call; firing range practice and weapons use; responding to a hit and run including ambulance response; dragging a lake for a drowning victim; and river patrol fire hose response to a house fire.
