A LETTER FROM CHAD
For nearly 30 years I have worked for the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department with one goal in mind; protect this community while keeping ALL of its residents safe.
In 2018, residents of Riverside County elected me to address the issues facing the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. The department budget was a mess, deputies were leaving the department because they had little support from the previous administration, and relationships with municipal police agencies and other county law enforcement partners were in shambles.
During my first term as Sheriff, we were presented with new challenges that we met head-on. Rather than sit back during a time of civil unrest and a worldwide pandemic, we led the nation in our response to both.
I stood up to the politicians in Sacramento who tried to release violent prisoners early
I set an example for the state with our response to combating Covid-19 in our jails
I balanced the Sheriff’s Department Budget while adding hundreds of deputies to protect our county
I have worked to provide a more open, transparent agency to bridge the trust between the Sheriff’s Department and the community
My work as Sheriff is just getting started. Our department is facing new challenges because of laws and mandates coming from Sacramento that are causing a dramatic increase in crime.
I’m asking for your support as we continue toward our goal of making Riverside County the best and safest place in the country to live, work, and raise our kids.
– Sheriff Chad Bianco
Members Corner – Sexual Assault Awareness Month
By: Desi Bergman – NotMeCA Project Manager
Sexual Assault Awareness Month, observed each April, is a campaign that aims to increase awareness about the causes and risk factors for sexual assault and empower individuals to take steps to prevent it in their communities. It’s a sad reality that women are often the victims of domestic violence, 91% of the time. One in three women experience sexual assault involving physical contact at some point in their lifetime. Local, 3 women are raped each day.
The NotMeCA Movement is IEGO’s initiative to stop sexual assault and end domestic violence in Southern California. NotMeCA’s goal is to help women become her own first responder. Firearms can be scary for someone who has little to no knowledge about them. NotMeCA has an amazing team of Ambassadors who are very knowledgeable and passionate about sharing their knowledge on firearms. Ambassadors help women who are involved in NotMeCA every step of the way. We provide guidance to any woman wanting to purchase a firearm for the first time. We will help women find professional training to better understand how to safely and properly use a firearm. To carry a firearm outside the home, you must possess a CCW. We will also guide women through the process on how to obtain a California Concealed Weapons permit. NotMeCA is here to empower women to take control of her own safety. Courage. Knowledge. Power. NotMeCA.

Throwback BLOG: SASOs – American Normals Fight Back
By Joe Drammissi
When I first became a Second Amendment (2A) activist I remember thinking about the subject of Sanctuaries. At the time the idea of sanctuary cities, counties, and even states was gaining traction. These were focused on immigration issues and ignoring federal law aimed at stopping illegal immigration.
I remember thinking how nice it would be if people began creating Second Amendment Sanctuary areas. 2A Sanctuaries, places where the Second Amendment was protected by law and dangerous gun control laws were not enforced. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one having these thoughts.
Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinances (SASO) are now being implemented, in ever increasing numbers, across the country. SASOs are ordinances adopted by cities, counties, and, in some cases, entire states. SASOs are intended to protect the Second Amendment from dangerous, unconstitutional gun control laws.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Become a #NotMeIE Ambassador
The #NotMeIE program is a mentor/mentee referral service run by women for women to help them:
Obtain firearms training
Get assistance in choosing and purchasing a firearm
Obtain a CCW
How does the program work?
A potential client can fill out the application for service on our website. Once received, the project manager reviews the application and assigns the client to an Ambassador. An Ambassador then contacts the client to begin the process of walking them through whatever their firearm needs are. After the client has been successfully helped, their case is closed, and the Ambassador is given a new client to work with. Some of our Ambassadors are also NRA certified trainers. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of firearms training and purchasing. IEGO also offers an online CCW seminar once a month. Check the IEGO website for upcoming dates. If you are an experienced gun owner and are interested in becoming an Ambassador for the #NotMeIE program please reach out to Karla at [email protected]
