On May 11, 2022, the Annual Solano County Police Memorial was held in front of the Solano County Sheriff's Office in Fairfield.

Many were in attendance, including our extended family of Jim Capoot. Jim’s grandchildren (whom he never met) helped place flowers on the memorial plaques mounted to the granite s...

Continued Losses
You may have read about the loss of four (4) Vallejo officers to resignation and retirement recently. This is happening at a much higher frequency as of late. Losing four officers in rapid succession (Ehman, Williams, Davis and a trainee) is a big loss. This brings staffing to a low of 84 sworn members. That is 48 officers short of VPD’s authorized strength (budgeted). 4 - 8 ! The reality is that there are not 84 working officers actually available to staff Patrol and the specialized un...

Thanks & Good Luck!

This month we also wish another young rookie officer the best of luck after his resignation from the the Field Training Program.  The training program is a rigorous 6-8 month process where...
