Sheriff Eli Rivera

We will be recognized for our exemplary service, professionalism, and dedication to the people we serve as we adapt to emerging trends and contribute to the quality of life for all.
We will adopt a more reasonable culture of the guardian mindset as we seek to safeguard the communities we serve. Service over crime-fighting, communications over command, cooperation over compliance, legitimacy over authority, restraint over control, stability over action.
We will accomplish this by providing and improving our civil process services, prisoner transportation, court security, public safety communications, and our responsibility as law enforcement Deputies.
