Crime Victims United of California Endorses Sheriff Scott Jones for Congress

(Sacramento, CA) – Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones today announced that he has secured the endorsement of Crime Victims United of California in his race for California’s 3rd Congressional District.

Since its founding in 1990, Crime Victims United of California’s mission has been to support and strengthen public safety, promote balance in the criminal justice system and protect the rights of victims. Crime Victims United is known as the nation’s most trusted victims’ rights advocacy group. 

"I'm proud to have earned the endorsement of Crime Victims United of California, an organization that fiercely advocates for crime victim's rights and public safety. As Sheriff, I've seen firsthand how soft-on-crime laws endanger our communities and let criminals go free. I'm committed to putting crime victims first, and putting criminals in jail. This endorsement is especially meaningful, as it is a group I have worked closely with for 12 years as Sheriff, helping give a voice to the often forgotten victims." - Sheriff Scott Jones

Crime Victims United of California's endorsement joins those of the California State Sheriff's Association, Gun Owners of America, conservative leaders Congressman Tom McClintock, Congressman Doug LaMalfa, Congressman Darrell Issa, State Senator Jim Nielsen, and former or current Sheriffs in all 10 counties in CA-03.

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 has been an advocate for investing in public safety and a vocal opponent of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement. In Congress, 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.

California’s 3rd Congressional District includes the Counties of Placer, Nevada, Mono, Sierra, Inyo, Plumas and Alpine and portions of Sacramento, El Dorado, and Yuba Counties. It is an open seat and Republicans hold a 7-point registration advantage.
