An Open Letter from Lancaster Sheriff's Station Lt. Joseph Fender, who is attending the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
I challenge each of you, upon your honorable discharge of service from the Marine Corps, to continue serving and protecting the citizens of our country in the profession of law enforcement. Like the Marine Corps, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has a long history of “Honor, Commitment and Courage.” As the Marine Corps Hymn recalls your great campaigns across the globe, so too have we kept our citizens safe, “From the beaches of Malibu to the mountains of Altadena, from the deserts of Lancaster to the concrete jungles of South Los Angeles.” Our own 150 year history is mired in tradition, history and pride. We are a department of diversity, made up of those who represent the fabric of this nation, many of whom have served honorably among you.
At a time in our nation’s history when the need for patient, resolute and courageous law enforcement officers are most in need, I challenge you to answer the call. We are searching for the “best of the best,” and you have certainly met that criteria. That is what the public expects and deserves, and they are who you deserve to serve alongside. You will always be a United States Marine, and now you can be a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff as well. Bravo Zulu on tonight’s performance, thank you for your service and sacrifice, and Semper Fidelis.
Respectfully and humbly in your service,
Lieutenant Joseph Fender
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Lancaster Station.
One Badge. Unlimited Possibilities.
