If elected, Community Resource Deputies or “Resident Deputies” will continue to be a priority for the Sheriff’s Office. These Deputies are assigned to the unincorporated towns like Esparto, Capay Valley, Dunnigan, Yolo, Knights Landing and Clarksburg.
These positions will consist of community-oriented policing practices, which involves developing strong relationships with the residents, business owners and school officials. Resident Deputies are a valuable asset, because they are able to effectively address crime and quality-of-life issues that are often unique within their communities.
I will help the Resident Deputies incorporate outreach programs which directly benefit these rural communities. A clear and present need is in our schools, where our Resident Deputies can have a positive impact with our youth. Whether it being on campus as a mentor, teaching youth development programs (G.R.E.A.T), providing assistance to school administrators and parents.
If you have any ideas or suggestions that you would like to see our Resident Deputies involved with when I become Sheriff, please email me at email@example.com.
A collaboration of ideas can build better programs…. a better Sheriff’s Office.
I am proud to announce the endorsement from the Yolo County Deputy Sheriff's Association for Yolo Sheriff.
I am honored to receive overwhelming support from my fellow Deputies, who believe in me.
This picture shows the current status of Yolo County pertaining to the issuance of CCWs.
First, I want to thank everyone that took the time to comment, private message, and email me about the CCW topic. I read all of them and took each of your wishes and concerns into consideration.
If elected as Yolo Sheriff, you will see a continued communication and collaboration with the citizens of the county in an effort to serve in ways that matter to them. I feel that Yolo County’s current policy is discriminatory, often denying qualified citizens a CCW permit simply because they do not own a business.
What about the individuals that are nurses, firefighters, office managers that carry large sums of cash to the bank, prior victims of violence, and shift workers?
Owners of businesses are not the only ones that have the right to keep themselves safe. We cannot have Law Enforcement everywhere, nor would we want to.
I firmly believe that red is unacceptable for our county.
If you look at surrounding counties they’re in the green and dark green categories. As Sheriff, I would model our policy similar to our surrounding counties’ CCW policies. I would make the application and testing process available to all residents, requiring extensive background checks and training requirements.
Thank you for your support in helping make this county what we want it to be!
