According to Mr. Hansen, “Our campaign is about building a future for Sacramento where every resident feels welcomed, protected, and empowered. I am deeply grateful and honored to receive the endorsement of the Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association in my campaign for Mayor of Sacramento, because we share a goal in improving public safety through thoughtful leadership, compassion, and collaboration with the community at large. Everyone deserves to feel safe in their community and be assured that when they call for help, their call will be answered. I wholeheartedly look forward to collaborating closely with our deputy sheriffs and other public safety agencies to develop innovative solutions that will create a safer and more prosperous Sacramento for all.”

We know Steve Hansen will lead the city by investing in 911 first responders and law enforcement to reduce crime and improve neighborhood security. Steve will make addressing homelessness and creating safer communities his top priorities. For these reasons and many more, Sacramento’s deputy sheriffs are pleased to join Sacramento police in endorsing Steve Hansen for Mayor —because he is the best choice for public safety.” -Sergeant Nathan Seger, S.C.D.S.A.
