Deputy Justin Varner

Deputy Varner

I joined the US Army in 2008 as a Field Artillery Cannon Crewmember. I was stationed at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, TX and I was deployed once to Afghanistan for 10 1/2 months. After serving with the Army and moving back to Sacramento I was accepted into the Sacramento Sheriff's Training Academy. Besides the training and experience I gained from joining the military, one additional perk was receiving the GI Bill, which paid me a housing allowance while I was in the academy and covered most of the academy expenses. My transition into Police work has been fairly easy, and I know it's due to the training I received with the Army. I am looking forward to my future career ahead with the Sacramento Sheriff's Department and all that comes along with the position.
