The Bear Goes Everywhere!

 

Hey LA County! Check out this week's installment of #TheBearGoesEverywhere- Beach Patrol Deputies at #ZumaBeach in #Malibu!

Well, this looks like a tough assignment! The @CityofMalibu in West Los Angeles County is known worldwide for being the home of movie stars and beaches as well as several great state parks with hiking and picnic spots.

The City of Malibu, known as the “Bu” by some locals, incorporated in 1991 and has an estimated population of 13,000. Zuma Beach is a county beach popular for volleyball, fishing and watersports, including surfing, swimming, and kitesurfing. Zuma has been used as a popular filming location and can be seen anywhere on TV shows like Beverly Hills 90210 and I Dream of Jeannie, to films like Planet of the Apes and the Big Lebowski. The beach hosts numerous surfing competitions and the annual Nautica Triathlon coming up on September 15th and 16th.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has patrolled the area of Malibu continuously since 1850. The Original Malibu Sheriff’s Station building, built in 1934, still stands on Pacific Coast Highway, have you seen it? The current Malibu Sheriff’s Station was built in 1991. Today, Malibu/ Lost Hills station patrols the communities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Westlake Village, as well as the unincorporated areas of Chatsworth, Topanga and West Hills. The deputies seen here are specially assigned to the summer time Beach Team, where they concentrate on keeping the sands safe by monitoring for alcohol on the beach, crowd control and parking hazards.

If you are ever in the Malibu area, swing by Zuma Beach and Point Dume and remember if you see one of our fine deputies patrolling, don’t forget to say, “Hello!”
