Kevin Jensen

  Today the DSA announced to the media and the public it's endorsement of Sheriff's Captain Kevin Jensen for the position of County Sheriff in 2014.  The DSA is announcing this endorsement now, in the hopes of encouraging meaningful discussion about the Sheriff's Office, it's changing role, the future of services it provides to all the people in Santa Clara County, and what type of leadership it will take to bring it all together.  We believe Kevin Jensen is a leader who can move the Sheriff's Office into the next era.

SANTA CLARA COUNTY’S DEPUTY SHERIFFS’ ASSOCIATION AND CORRECTIONAL PEACE OFFICERS’ ASSOCIATION VOTE OVERWHELMINGLY TO ENDORSE CAPT. KEVIN JENSEN FOR COUNTY SHERIFF IN JUNE, 2014 ELECTION
 

In a landslide, Santa Clara County’s Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (DSA) and the Santa Clara County Correctional Peace Officers’ Association (SCCCPOA) have voted to endorse Sheriff’s Captain Kevin Jensen for the position of County Sheriff. Together, they represent 1,100 members who serve in enforcement and in the jail system.

The Jensen vote was 90 percent for the DSA and 100 per cent for the SCCCPOA, said Dennis Moser, DSA president and SCCCPOA president Lance Scimeca. The voting results were announced to members of both organizations yesterday (July 14).

“Our members are sworn to protect and serve the residents of Santa Clara County. We take this responsibility proudly and seriously and do not make this endorsement lightly,” said Scimeca. “Our members have worked with both candidates for many years, and cast their votes based on their experience.”

Both associations are concerned about the current lack of vision, inadequate staffing, lack of training, outdated computers and patrol cars and the isolation of the department from other law enforcement agencies in the county, Moser explained.

“We are impressed with Capt. Jensen’s 28 years of experience with the Office of the Sheriff and his deep knowledge of both the enforcement side and the jail side of the Sheriff’s Office. He will bring a contemporary, collaborative view and help us all better serve the residents of Santa Clara County,” Moser remarked.
