Despite county budget constraints that have reduced the number of Deputy Sheriffs serving our communities, and state-mandated criminal justice changes that have resulted in the release of hundreds of felons from state prisons, Riverside County Sheriff Stan Sniff has maintained the safety and security of county residents, reducing the County’s violent crime rate by 8.8% in 2017.
The Riverside County Sheriff ’s Department is the third largest in California, with 3,600 full-time staff and over 1,600 volunteers.
As Sheriff, Sniff oversees countywide patrol operations, jail operations, court security, coroner investigations, and manages an annual operating budget of nearly 700 million dollars.
Sheriff Sniff oversaw a drop in crime rate across Riverside County last year.
