Deputy Jeff Weaver began his law enforcement career with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Patrol Division. He had been a resident of Orange County for more than 20 years and decided to follow his roots and return. He joined the Orange County Sheriff’s Department in 1994 and was assigned to the Theo Lacy Facility in the City of Orange.
In 1997, he had a rare opportunity to work in the former Sheriff’s Facilities Planning Division. Over the next several years, he helped develop and build the Katella Range/Armory Building, the Inmate Commissary Headquarters/Warehouse and the Sheriff’s Property and Evidence Warehouse.
Jeff, with generous support from the Sheriff’s Advisory Council, also had the privilege of rebuilding and remodeling the Orange County Peace Officers’ Memorial before it was finally relocated to the current Sheriff’s Training Academy. Following the memorial, Jeff was assigned to the Jail Construction team, which nearly tripled the size of Theo Lacy.
In 2008, Jeff was transferred to the James A. Musick Facility. He has worked almost every position in Custody Operations. He has been a Training Officer, Classification Officer, Emergency Response Team (ERT) member and Terrorist Liaison Officer. Through the years, he has maintained focus on one core value, service above self.
Jeff’s service to his fellow deputies began almost 22 years ago as an area representative. During that time, he assisted and supported numerous battles for departmental funding and attacks on our employee benefits, including attempts at pension reforms. He was asked to be part of the AOCDS Contract Negotiations Team and has been involved in several contracts and other outside contract agreements.
In 2009, Jeff began to serve as a Fraternal Order of Police National Delegate for our local Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge 18. In 2015, Jeff was asked to join the AOCDS Political Action Committee. This has proven to be a demanding and complex but rewarding committee assignment. Learning both the advocacy and opposition sides of new legislation, while building relationships with elected and appointed officials, is quite challenging. Jeff is grateful to work with extremely talented fellow members who are helpful and share their experience.
Due to a retirement in 2016, the AOCDS Board of Directors appointed Jeff to the vacant seat. He began by carrying out the Sergeant-at-Arms duties and is now serving as the 2nd Vice President. Jeff is proud to serve AOCDS as a board member, a Medical Trustee and an FOP Lodge 18 Trustee. He was elected in 2017 to a second term.
Jeff says “It is both an honor and a privilege to serve the members of our great organization. I am here because of you; this, I will never take lightly, nor will I forget.”
