Juan Viramontes has been a proud and active member of AOCDS for the past 16 years. He was appointed to the AOCDS Board of Directors in 2012, has served as the 2nd Vice President and is currently serving as the 1st Vice President.

As a child, Juan decided to pursue a career in law enforcement after seeing the way a police officer comforted him and his brothers when their house had been burglarized while his parents were shopping and he and his older brother were swimming at the YMCA.

After having such a positive experience with a police officer, Juan decided he would love to be able to help people like that police officer did that day.

He began his career with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department in May 1995 as a Sheriff’s Special Officer assigned to the Intake Release Center. On April 1, 1998, he graduated from the Orange County Sheriff’s Academy as a deputy and was assigned to work at the Theo Lacy Jail Facility.

He served on the most recent AOCDS Negotiations Team and was an active Area Representative before being honored with the privilege to serve all of you on the Board of Directors. He has worked a variety of assignments that has provided him with experience and insight to many areas of the department, including custody, Patrol (Stanton) and OCTA Transit Police Services.
