LIVE OAK For four hours a week, Tim Loe teaches children about safety, looks for suspicious activity at people’s homes and reports safety violations at parks — all duties in the typical day of a sheriff’s deputy. Except he’s not a paid employee, he’s a volunteer with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office.

“It’s just out there having fun,” said Loe, a Mount Hermon resident and retired active duty and reserves police officer with the Armed Forces. “It keeps you in the law enforcement loop.”

Galt High alum challenger in sheriff’s race

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones now has a challenger in his run for a third term. Elk Grove resident Donna Cox, a retired Sacramento County sheriff’s sergeant, recently announced that she is running for sheriff in this year’s election.

Jones announced his plan to retire last August but he changed his mind last month after Kris Palmer opted to drop out of the sheriff’s race. He ran unopposed for re-election in 2014.

Cox said that her desire to serve as the county’s next sheriff comes from her passion and desire to help others, and her belief that she is the superior candidate.
