Unfortunately, the VPOA must announce the departure of yet another veteran officer from the Department. Jason Thompson has taken his 14 years of experience and accepted a job with another Solano County law enforcement agency. Jason is a homegrown member of the Vallejo Police Department. He began his law enforcement journey as a member of the Department's youth outreach Vallejo Police Explorer program as a teenager. After joining the Marine Corps, Jason was hired as a police officer with the City of Emeryville. Wanting to return to his roots, Jason brought his 5 years of experience back to Vallejo in 2012. Most recently, Jason served on the Solano County FBI Violet Crimes Task Force. Jason's vast experience and knowledge will be hard to replace. Thank you and good luck Jason!
