Marin County Sheriff's Office Social Media Program

The goal of the Marin County Sheriff’s Office Social Media Program is to be engaged with the community and show the public that we are committed to partnering with you to provide leadership and excellence in public safety.

In general there are three types of messages that we post. These categories are based on the following whether it’s an Alert, Advisory, and/or a Community message.

𝐀𝐥𝐞𝐫𝐭: messages reserved for critically important information where loss of life and/or property is potentially imminent, are made using the most immediate delivery modes.

Examples: severe weather warning, gas leak, contagious disease outbreak, wildfire, tsunami warning, missing person (ie. Child or Elder Adult)

Where do I get these types of messages?
• Reverse 9-1-1, text and email (sign up at

𝐀𝐝𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐨𝐫𝐲: messages that contain important, need to know information. Advisories should be considered less time-critical than Alerts and require a heightened sense of awareness.

Examples: Road closure/detour, school closing, severe weather , public safety activity.
