I have been in LE for most of my life, in 1976 at 15yrs old, I was a Sheriff's Cadet for 5 yrs and then I was hired as a Police Officer by a local PD. I have many friends that work in the Sheriff's Dept. some that were cadets with me. I can say that the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Dept. made me the cop I am today. I can say that the Deputies I know that work there are very proud and very professional LE. I will always support the Sheriff's Dept., they were so good to me and gave me so much in the support I needed to find my way as a kid. It takes a few
bad cops to give a place a bad name, but trust me this is not the norm in this dept.
