The Sacramento County Sheriff is a public position elected by the people of the county. Scott Jones was elected to Sacramento County Sheriff in 2010, and re-elected in 2014, putting him in one of the most powerful positions in county government. In this time, under his “leadership,” his department has arrested black people at 3.5 times the rate of white people. He has cost the county millions of dollars in law suits for excessive force, rape, in-custody deaths and torture, and military weapons used in his jail. He has promoted deputies after they have used violence and excessive force. So instead of holding deputies accountable, Sheriff Scott Jones is rewarding violent behavior. In 2010, four Sheriff’s Department employees filed a lawsuit based on racial and sexual discrimination and harassment. There were also other lawsuits that reached settlement involving disability discrimination and sexual harassment complaints from employees.
