Mr. Don Elliott, Sr.
"Senior Officer Elliott"

Don Elliott Sr., our dear friend, colleague and co-founder of the Ventura County Police and Sheriff's Reserve Officer Academy passed on December 19, 2014. Don spent more than 30 years of his life directing the academy. There he mentored thousands of young men and women entering the law enforcement profession. Most officers and deputies, regular and reserve in the Ventura County area knew him well and have been through his program. He was tough, fair, had a big heart and inspired many. A truly great man, indeed. Godspeed, Senior Officer Elliott!

Former graduates of this academy program are invited to comment and share memories on the Ventura County Police and Sheriff's Academy Facebook page:
