California Peace Officers Association Endorses Sheriff Bill Brown for Re-Election

The California Peace Officers Association has joined more than 1,100 other organizations, elected officials, law enforcement leaders, community supporters and citizens in endorsing Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown for re-election.

“The California Peace Officers Association represents the totality of the law enforcement profession. Our membership includes sheriffs; chiefs of police; command staff at the local, state and federal levels; as well as rank and file officers," said Chief Richard Lucero, CPOA president. "We take our responsibility of representing the entire profession seriously and have extensively reviewed your request for CPOA’s endorsement.

"I am pleased to tell you that our Board of Directors voted unanimously to endorse your re-election campaign for Santa Barbara County sheriff.”

Other supporters include the California Police Chiefs Association, the Santa Barbara County Deputy District Attorneys Association, Gov. Jerry Brown, Attorney General Kamala Harris, District Attorney Joyce Dudley, Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian and a majority of the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
