A Life of Service – San Diego County Sheriff’s Department
Life of Service June 23rd is United Nations Public Service Day. The Sheriff’s Department is grateful for the service of nearly 4,200 employees and nearly 2,000 volunteers who help us achieve our mission of “Keeping the Peace.” They bring career experiences from various backgrounds to make a difference.
Senior Volunteer Joe Ruthenberg from the Vista Sheriff’s Station is one of our exceptional volunteers who keeps serving his community. He served 23 years in the Marine Corps flying planes and helicopters. One special assignment took him to the White House as a co‐pilot for President Ronald Reagan’s helicopter crew.

On this National Safety Month, we want to remind San Diegans about our free vacation checks. Make sure your home is safe and secure while you’re on your summer getaway. Let us know when you’re leaving and Senior Volunteers will perform security inspections around your home during the week. If they see anything suspicious, they will call for the assistance of a deputy to determine if there’s been a break‐in. Simply fill out a vacation check form and bring it to your nearest Sheriff’s Station or Substation. Watch the video on VIMEO above
