Captain Randy Peshon, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, promoted as new Undersheriff, replacing retiring Rich Williams.
Less than 18 months ago El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office Captain Randy Peshon received appointment to the Judicial Council Collaborative Justice Courts Advisory Committee by Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, Chief Justice of California and Chair of the Judicial Council. Captain Peshon was nominated for this prestigious position by El Dorado County Superior Court Presiding Judge Suzanne N. Kingsbury. – See more at: http://www.inedc.com/1-6502
Earlier, using AB 109 funds allocated to the county and protected by Proposition 30, El Dorado County CCP began increasing efforts to provide inmates with support behind jail walls. “We started interviewing inmates,” said Peshon. “‘What brought you to jail? What can we do about it while you’re here?’” The CCP then began bolstering its community partnerships — such as with Lake Tahoe Community College — to provide inmates with the opportunity to receive treatment, learn job skills, and build a resume while still behind bars.
A special promotional ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday February 17th in Judge Kingsbury’s Courtroom. Normally promotional ceremonies occur in Placerville but Mike Yarbrough, Matt Underhill, and Randy Peshon have special ties to the South Lake Tahoe community.
Mike will be sworn-in as a new Sergeant, Matt as a Lieutenant, and Randy as the new Undersheriff replacing retiring Rich Williams.
Judge Kingsbury has opened her courtroom to friends, family and the public to celebrate the proceedings.
It is scheduled to begin at 4 PM.
