Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month

Each year, we observe National Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.

Mental Health and Wellness Workshops

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Our mission this month as a Los Rios community is to R.I.S.E. together. R.I.S.E stands for Reducing stigma, Increasing awareness, Strengthening resolve, and Elevating over the obstacles that can weigh us down. When we R.I.S.E. as a community, it supports us all as “sticks in a bundle are unbreakable” (African proverb).


This month, join the Los Rios Center for Mental Health and Wellness team for three workshop opportunities. These workshops will focus on coping with stress, mindfulness, and gaining skills to support yourself or those you love who may be at higher risk for suicide.

New LRPD Uniforms

The Los Rios Police Department (LRPD) has changed its uniforms, with the goal of making officers more approachable while still clearly identifiable to our community. LRPD has been engaged in a series of substantive reforms in the wake of the murder of George Floyd and our organizational commitment to equity and social justice, aligned with the work of Campaign Zero. This change is part of that work, with the goal of demilitarizing the look of officers’ uniforms as well as ensuring that our officers are not confused with those from other agencies.
