President's Message

Bryan Payne

The Deputy Sheriff's Association (DSA) is a professional organization of more than 170 sworn law enforcement officers employed by the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office and the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office. The DSA provides professional representation to our members and works with our various employers to ensure we attract and retain the best and brightest men and women to serve our communities. It is our belief that law enforcement is most effective when law enforcement officers work together with the community and all branches of government to resolve community problems.

We are proud of the service we provide and the leadership role law enforcement serves in the community. We strive daily to provide a safe and secure environment for those who live in, work in, or visit El Dorado County. For over 150 years, the DSA has been "The Strength Behind the Badge" supporting El Dorado County Deputies, their families, and their communities. You are the reason we are here and we are committed to serving you with honor and distinction.
