Sheriff's Message

Sheriff Jones

Thank you for taking the time to consider joining this agency. I am Scott Jones, Sheriff of Sacramento County. As the Sheriff of Sacramento County, it is my responsibility to protect the citizens of this community. I oversee a department of almost 2,000 sworn and non-sworn personnel. They are some of the most talented people in modern law enforcement; their commitment to this community is unquestionable. One of the challenges I face is how to identify qualified people to work at this agency. That is why I am reaching out to the veterans of our military.

Before I continue any further, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the men and women who have honorably served this country in the armed forces. You have made sacrifices most others would not and could not comprehend. Your dedication to this country is forever appreciated.

It is precisely because of your dedication and experience that I am reaching out to you. I would like to demonstrate to you that the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department is an excellent opportunity for veterans to continue with their life of service. We are recognized as a leader in law enforcement services. We need talented people to carry on our proud traditions. The veterans of this country have proven they have the skills, honor, and commitment to service to perform in a multitude of situations.

As the Sheriff of Sacramento County, it is my responsibility to ensure the safety of this community. It is the people that I hire who must carry out this mission. I can think of no greater resource than the dedicated, experienced, skilled men and women who have protected our Country. I would be honored if you would consider joining our team.
