A message from County CEO Mike Powers

Dear Community Members,

In honor of National Police Week and Peace Officers Memorial Day, the Board of Supervisors and County of Ventura recognizes the service and sacrifice of federal, state, local and Tribal law enforcement.

This week is a time to honor our law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our communities and communities throughout our nation. The County of Ventura is deeply appreciative for the extraordinary courage and dedication with which members of law enforcement act each day serving our communities by ensuring public safety, when facing danger and putting their lives on the line.

Thirty-five men and women have died in the line of duty since 1897, serving communities throughout our county. These officers left behind spouses, children, parents, friends, and colleagues. We remember them during this time and extend our deepest sympathy to the loved ones left behind. We honor our fallen officers memorialized on our Ventura County Peace Officers Memorial located at the Ventura County Government Center.

As we take this moment to acknowledge the work and thank our police officers for all that they do every day, we are also reminded to support them and work together in the important work of protecting and improving public safety in our communities.


Mike Powers
County of Ventura Executive Officer
