I was hired on full time as a Deputy Sheriff March of 2002. Prior to being assigned to patrol in 2005, I was assigned as a bailiff and a holding tank officer at the Sacramento County Courthouse.

While assigned to patrol, I have been assigned to North Division and Central Division.

In March of 2016, I was privileged to be assigned to the K9 Detail and April of 2017, I became K9 Jedi’s handler.

K9 Jedi enjoys working patrol and during his days off, enjoys playing with his Kong and lounging on the grass.
