During the welcoming, Sheriff Brown shared the Golden Rule of Good Law Enforcement and Corrections. He said “After each and every encounter with a citizen, inmate, or co-worker, ask yourself, “If I was that person, would I honestly feel as though I had been treated fairly, courteously and professionally?” If the answer is yes, you’re doing a good job. If the answer is no, reflect on what was missing and make it right the next time.”

This welcome ceremony is a great example of the various exciting careers available at the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. These new employees will be working in our jail facilities, communications center, and administrative offices where they each play an important role in the Sheriff’s Office organization while making a difference in their community.  If you or someone you know is interested in a career in law enforcement- please visit for more information on how to join our team.
