I’ve lived in Sacramento County my entire life. For more than half that time, 33 years, I served the Sheriff’s Department, working extensively on the streets where I gained a first-hand understanding of how to protect our community.
As I moved up the ranks, I did successful work in roles such as detective and member of the narcotic gang division. Later, I became a leader of investigations and internal affairs. In these roles, I provided progressive leadership, innovation, and integrity as a change agent. I’ve worked with lawmakers, the public, and victims to help end the jail-to-streets-to-jail revolving door for thousands of people who now are productive in their communities. I’ve helped bring law enforcement into sync with a public that demands both protection and accountability.
