Community Policing

One of my priorities is to establish a tangible Community Policing model.  I believe a philosophy where we deliver patrol services where deputies get out of their cars, meet with business owners, and engage one on one with the pubic. I commit to working with all our diverse communities to resolve crime problems and enhance the quality of life in our county.

I cut my teeth as a community police officer in this model, it is hard, it takes leadership, commitment, and dedication throughout the organization, but it can be accomplished. I believe as a community we all benefit from law enforcement moving in this direction. I intend to improve training requirements well above what is required by the State of California. Together, we can improve outcomes for everyone when law enforcement must be called.
