Jim Cooper for Sheriff 2022

As a 30-year law enforcement veteran, 15-year Elk Grove Councilmember, and 8-year Legislator, I have dedicated my entire adult life to protecting and serving Sacramento County. At the age of 20, I proudly joined the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, earning the Bronze Star for Bravery and attaining the rank of Captain. 

During my time as a Captain, I spent nearly a decade as an undercover narcotics officer and gang detective fighting to keep our streets safe. I commanded nine divisions including the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Taskforce, combatting human trafficking and child sexual exploitation

More than ever, the people of Sacramento County need a Sheriff they can trust. We need a Sheriff with the leadership, experience, and relationships needed to tackle rising violent crime, rampant retail theft, and homelessness. 

In the Legislature, I continually advocated for victims’ rights, authoring more than 30 public safety bills; including legislation aimed towards cracking down on sexually violent predators, felony murderers, ghost guns, and school gun violence. 

As a lifelong Democrat, I’m proud to be endorsed by Crime Victims United, California Professional Firefighters, and law enforcement groups representing 50,000 peace officers. I would be honored to have your vote.
