"Whether serving as department point man on disaster preparedness, working with a psychic to solve a puzzling missing persons case or bringing closure to victims in a more than decade-old child molestation case, Fernando Realyvasquez has had a varied career with the Pacifica Police Department.

It's been a memorable and fulfilling journey, he says, but after 28 years Realyvasquez ("Ferny" to his colleagues and close friends) has decided to begin a new career path. He retired last week as a Pacifica Police Captain to join the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office as a patrol deputy. .... "I've made a lot of friends in the community, in the police department and among city staff. I'll miss everyone but will cherish all the relationships I've built over the years."   Read article.

Of Note: Realyvasquez went over to the sheriffs department. Probably cause the merger is going to happen sooner then we all think.

get off your collective arse city council and outsource now. the election is over, what's the excuse? prefer a tax? you're taking a month to clean up that outsourcing report before you can release it? you people are unbelievable--and that's not just a figure of speech.
