Oscar Martinez was deputy commander of a drug multi-jurisdictional task force. He has solid credentials having extensive experience in budgets, figuring overtime pay and grant compliance, while working with both police officers and civilians in 17 different agencies.

Oscar has vision, experience and youth in understanding a new generation of problems with a keen understanding of state-of-the-art technology and a desire of meeting these problems with a new generation of leadership.

His plans for a youth outreach program in our schools is something nobody has discussed. He has a track record proving he can do it. Oscar is the future of the Sheriff’s Department, and as voters we cannot ignore that.
