Sergeant Jack Songer was appointed by the Board in July of 2017. He first served as the Treasurer and is currently acting as Sergeant-at-Arms.
Songer joined OCSD in 1989 and spent the first nine years of his career working in Central Men’s Jail and the James A. Musick Facility. In 1998, he transferred to South Operations, where he spent the next couple years covering Lake Forest, Rancho Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo and the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA). From 2000 until 2011, Jack acted as a Field Training Officer for many of these areas. In April of that year, he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant, where he worked at the Theo Lacy Facility. In January of 2013, he returned to South Patrol as a patrol Sergeant in Rancho Santa Margarita and Aliso Viejo.
Prior to joining the Sheriff’s Department, Jack served in the United States Marine Corps. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, it was the Marine Corps that brought him to California in 1983. Jack says the highlight of his service as a Marine came one year later when he acted as a guard for President Ronald Reagan during a trip to the Great Wall of China.
Songer has been an active member of AOCDS since 1991. That’s when he became an Area Rep in the program that was in its infancy. He was selected as a member of the Contracts Negotiating Team for both the 2007 and 2016 contracts. Songer has also attended the FOP National Conferences as a Lodge 18 voting voice in the cities of Long Beach, Pittsburgh and his hometown of Cincinnati. He is a self-proclaimed voice for the people, where each person is considered equally important as the next.
