“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
