Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes spent three hours Thursday night speaking with more than 50 people who showed up at the Artemis Defense Institute to hear Barnes talk about the upcoming election for the Sheriff. Barnes is one of two candidates who announced they will run in 2018.
Barnes is a 29-year veteran of law enforcement in Orange County. Among other things he was Chief of Police in Lake Forest and then rose to the Department’s second highest position. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department (OCSD) serves 13 contract cities, most of which are in South Orange County.
