WAYNE QUINT RE-ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATION OF ORANGE COUNTY DEPUTY SHERIFFS (AOCDS)

He Is Also Re-Elected President Of The California Coalition Of Law Enforcement Associations

(CCLEA), The State’s Largest Umbrella Organization Of Law Enforcement Associations

SANTA ANA – The Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs (AOCDS) announced today that

Wayne J. Quint, Jr. has been re-elected President of their 1,800 member organization representing

the fully sworn deputies, investigators, and sergeants of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department

and the Orange County District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigations.

Besides unanimously electing Quint as President at their annual general membership meeting, the

organization also reappointed Herb Siegmund as 1st Vice President, Bill McGovern as 2nd Vice

President, Bruce Nuckolls as Secretary, Tom Dominguez as Treasurer, and Brian Heaney as their

Sergeant-At-Arms. Quint, Nuckolls, and 16-year board member Dominguez were all handily re-

elected to the group’s six-member board last month.

“I appreciate the strong vote of confidence from our members and am looking forward to continuing

to lead the fight against the erroneous pension lawsuit filed earlier this year by the Orange County

Board of Supervisors,” said Quint, who has served as Deputy Sheriff President since February of

1999. “I am also strongly committed to working to ensure that the men and women of the AOCDS

receive a fair and equitable contract next year that will allow the County of Orange the ability to

continue to recruit and retain the best law enforcement officers in the state of California.”

At the end of October, Quint was also re-elected to a two-year term as President of the California

Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations (CCLEA), a coalition of 45 different law enforcement

organizations representing over 80,000 peace officers throughout California. The group is the

largest umbrella organization of law enforcement associations in the state.

The longest serving President in the group’s 25 year history, Quint has served as CCLEA’s

President since 2002, representing some of the state’s largest law enforcement groups (Association

for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs; Los Angeles Police Protective League; California Correctional

Peace Officers Association; Peace Officers Research Association of California; Riverside,

Sacramento, Santa Clara, San Francisco, and San Diego County Sheriffs Associations, and the

Anaheim, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Oakland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa

Ana, and San Jose Police Officer Associations) in their effort to lobby state and federal officials for

the best training, safety equipment, salary, and benefits for law enforcement professionals.

The group also provides support to various charitable organizations, including crime victim and

public service groups, and works to elect state and local officials who are supportive of their issues.
