"Sheriff Scott Jones is a proven law enforcement leader who has my trust and confidence to be El Dorado County's next Congressman. I've worked side-by-side with Scott on public safety priorities in our region, and I know he is both a man of integrity and straight-talking leader who will always put the interests of the American people first. It's time for a pro-public safety leader in our House of Representatives." – El Dorado County Sheriff John D’Agostini


“I am proud to endorse Sheriff Scott Jones for Congress. Scott is the candidate I trust in this race to stand up for law and order as well as the values that make America unique in the world. His life has been dedicated to the service of others and the protection of our families. There is no question in my mind that Scott will make a great member of Congress for Placer County.” – Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner (Ret.)


"Strong, determined leadership is critical when responding to emergencies like the devastating wildfire disasters we've experienced in Plumas County. Both during and after a disaster, when people need help to rebuild their homes, businesses and their lives, I want to know my Congressman has Plumas County's back. I trust Sheriff Scott Jones and you can too. His experience as Sheriff makes him the best choice for our next Congressman." – Plumas County Sheriff Todd Johns 


Sheriff Jones accomplished a strong record of leadership at the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, stewarding the Department’s recovery from the worst financial crisis of its history, becoming a regional leader in the fight against gangs, and hiring a record number of women, minorities, and veterans. As one of the foremost experts on law enforcement in California, Sheriff Jones will be an advocate for investing in public safety and a vocal opponent of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement. Jones will be an advocate for fiscal accountability, border security, and restoring criminal justice to America’s communities. A nationally-recognized law enforcement leader, Jones has testified before congress, and has presented at two white house conferences on law enforcement, immigration and safety issues.
