San Diego County’s top two law enforcement officials – Sheriff Bill Gore and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis – announced their endorsements of Supervisor Dianne Jacob for re-election in 2016.

“Law enforcement couldn’t ask for a better partner on the Board of Supervisors than Dianne Jacob,” said Sheriff Gore.

“During Dianne’s tenure on the board, we’ve been able to double the number of deputies protecting our communities.  She enabled us to open new sheriff’s stations in Julian, Alpine, Poway, Pine Valley and Rancho San Diego, and to soon open another in Lakeside. With her support, we were able to expand detention centers, add hundreds of jail beds and improve inmate rehabilitation programs. She supported our new ASTREA helicopter facility and helped us secure three ASTREA helicopters for use by law enforcement and for firefighting. She pushed for enhancements in our Regional Communications System and for uniform curfew hours,” said Gore.

“Dianne Jacob has been one of law enforcement’s biggest supporters, and I’ve relied on her support to keep our county safe,” said District Attorney Dumanis. “Dianne initiated the East County Gang Task Force and supported establishment of the Meth Strike Force. She helped us ramp up our fight against human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children, creating a regional council and creating a joint task force, and helped establish the first countywide sex offender pin map,” said Dumanis.

“I value the working relationships I have with Sheriff Gore and District Attorney Dumanis. I am gratified to have support from the top two law enforcement officials in our region, because I’ve always considered the public’s safety to be the first and most important responsibility of local government,” said Jacob.
