It has been my honor to serve the people of San Benito as their 15th Sheriff-Coroner since 2011. The Sheriff is both a Guardian of Democracy and Soldier for Justice, protecting the rights of all, and pursuing the prosecution of those who abuse those freedoms by committing crimes.
This year, 2018, marks my 30th year of full-time law enforcement, spending the first 23 serving a nearby community. I've served in the role of Officer, Corporal, Detective, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Sheriff and Coroner. I have gained expertise in family crimes, sex crimes, gang crimes, narcotics enforcement, training, Human Resources, and Internal Affairs.
We raised our children in this beautiful county, and we hope to see our grandchildren grow up here as well. I pledge to use all my experience and expertise to keep San Benito a safe community.
On June 5th I look forward to your vote!
Sheriff Darren Thompson
