San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office

The Office of the Sheriff for San Joaquin County has existed since 1850. The Sheriff holds an elective office, which is subject to the vote of the citizens of the county. The Sheriff is elected to a four-year term and he or she may serve additional terms if re-elected by the citizens. The newly elected Sheriff is Patrick Withrow. Sheriff Withrow is preceded by 24 previous Sheriffs.

The Sheriff’s Office is committed to making San Joaquin County a safe environment for its citizens and visitors alike by providing premier law enforcement services. Given the current economic climate, fulfilling this commitment can prove to be quite challenging. Therefore, our agency works twelve months a year on ways to save money through process analysis and quality improvement.
