Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon was in Orange County last week for the State Sheriffs’ Association’s 122nd Annual Conference where he, along with a handful of other California Sheriffs, were sworn-in by Governor Jerry Brown as the association’s 2016-2017 officers.
“This will be a great opportunity for me to represent the needs of rural communities and the law enforcement agencies that serve them,” said Growdon.
“Additionally, I will continue to support the goals and mission of CSSA, California’s Sheriffs, and most importantly, the needs of our citizens in Lassen County.”
The mission of the nonprofit professional organization is to support the role of sheriff as the chief law enforcement officer in each California County and to speak as a collective voice on matters of public safety.
“I am extremely pleased to have been elected by my fellow Sheriffs to serve as CSSA’s President this year,” said Sheriff Donny Youngblood, who was named CSSA’s President at the conference. “It is an honor to have their trust and support. Moreover, it is a privilege to serve our Association as well as our great State. Going forward, there will be many public safety matters to address this year, and I am humbled and grateful to know that the new CSSA Officers, the Board of Directors, and the other elected Sheriffs of California will be working along with me. Together, we will have a great year.”
