DEPUTY SHERIFFS' ACTIVITIES LEAGUE
In-Person Recreational Programs on Hold
Join Us, We're Going Online!
To our DSAL Families & Partners, March 13, 2020
We’ve been following developments over the past weeks about the escalation in local & national concerns over the COVID-19 Coronavirus. The health and safety of our members, staff, volunteers, and the community around us is always our top priority. Under guidance from county health officials, the DSAL Board of Directors has made the decision to suspend all DSAL recreational programming through Sunday, April 5. We will be reassessing the situation and speaking with the appropriate local health officials in the meantime and make guided decisions about programming after that date.
DSAL wants to keep our community moving and during this time. Our recreation staff is working on content to post to YouTube and Instagram over the coming weeks while in-person programming is paused. We'll be featuring...
Boxing w/ Manny
Fitness w/ Mickey
Soccer w/ Omar, Ricky, & Bijan
Dance w/ Angie
Fitness Challenges w/ Jessica
Drumline w/ Rich
Taekwondo w/ Kevin

Thank you and we look forward to staying connected with you as we work together as a community to get through this challenging time.
We encourage everyone to take care of one another. These are the moments that test a community but can also bring out the best in us. Please help educate your friends and neighbors using factual information from official health sources (linked below or attached to this message). Please do your part in minimizing the spread of this virus which can be extremely dangerous to those most vulnerable in our community.
Key actions to Stop the Spread of Germs (from the CDC)
1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
2. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
4. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
5. Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
6. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Are you having trouble finding food during the Covid 19 shelter in place order?
The Community Capitals Framework (CCF) is an approach originally developed by economists Jan and Cornelia Flora to analyze communities and community development efforts from a systems perspective. The Floras found that the communities that best supported economic development focused on seven types of capital, not just traditional investment in real estate.
The Sheriff's Office and DSAL have adapted the model to frame a bold new approach to public safety. Community Capitals policing leverages:
“Traditional” community-oriented and problem-solving policing
The Police Activities League model: DSAL's soccer, boxing, fitness and events
Creative Placemaking: murals, festivals, and performances
Economic Development: working to create new opportunities for business and entrepreneurs
to rebuild the social fabric, foster collective efficacy and promote a sense of permanence among community members.
