Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones on Monday was sworn in as president of the California Peace Officers’ Association.

Jones, who previously served as first vice president of the association, was selected by fellow law enforcement officials to lead the organization. Monday’s ceremony took place in Long Beach.

The association is made up of more than 3,000 law enforcement officials of various ranks from agencies throughout California, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release.
