I believe the citizens of Orange County deserve a team of well trained law enforcement professionals prepared and willing to be responsive to their needs. I am committed to providing the leadership as we move forward towards that goal. After returning to work September 2nd and working alongside Sheriff Pendergrass to ensure a smooth transfer of power, we have 95% of our personnel in place and on the job. No deputies, detention officers or administrative staff have lost their jobs during this transition. When you have a winning team as a solid foundation, the only thing left to do is build and that's just what we plan to do.
