Among the four Deputy Sheriff Officers promoted to the rank of Deputy Sheriff by Sheriff Jewell Williams yesterday was Dolores Ramos, making her the first female Latino Deputy Sheriff to hold the position in the more than 300-year history of the office.

“Last month we promoted Lieutenant Michael Bastone to Captain, making him the first Latino to hold the position here, and now Dolores Ramos has ascended to the rank of Deputy Sheriff,” said Sheriff Williams. “Both promotions were well earned and well deserved”.


The other three promoted to Deputy Sheriff were Stephen Postell, Craig Palmer, and William Bengochea.

“Diversity is not only important to me and this office,” said Sheriff Williams, “it is just as important to the public we serve that we truly represent them at every level”.

The ethnic breakdown of the officers is as follows:

African American 166…….55-percent

Female 60………20-percent

Male 106…….35-percent

White 102……..34-percent

Female 13………..4-percent

Male 89……….30-percent

Latino 31………..10-percent

Female 7…………..2-percent

Male 24………….8-percent

Asian Male 1………….0.3-percent
