Remember the Fallen

Every year on September 11th, the United States recognizes Patriot Day to honor all those who lost their lives as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In accordance with the Patriot Day law, all Orange County Sheriff’s Department facilities will fly their flags at half-staff today, Monday, September 11, 2023.

The deadly deputy shooting on Sunday in Douglas County, Colorado hits closer to home than we first realized. Deputy Zackari Parrish, the deputy killed, was actually the area partner of former Orange County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Steve Maracine.
