Our Mission

The Fresno Deputy Sheriff’s Association was organized in 1973 to give members of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office the opportunity for fair representation based on the Peace Officer Bill of Rights. The FDSA was also organized to give a group of Deputy Sheriffs the opportunity to collectively bargain with the County of Fresno for wages, benefits, and working conditions.

End of Watch

The Fresno County Sheriff's Office commemorates the death of Deputy Sheriff Josh Lancaster

The Fresno Deputy Sheriff’s Association was organized in 1973 to give members of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office the opportunity for fair representation based on the Peace Officer Bill of Rights. The FDSA was also organized to give a group of Deputy Sheriffs the opportunity to collectively bargain with the County of Fresno for wages, benefits, and working conditions.

Over time, the FDSA has evolved, not only as a labor organization with the members we represent, but as part of the community as well. The FDSA is generous to charitable organizations, both financially and with active participation from its members. By working for an elected Sheriff, the FDSA stays politically involved in the community on issues the organization sees can affect law enforcement or the Sheriff.

The FDSA represents over 650 active employees. Although Deputy Sheriffs make up the majority of the membership, dispatchers, community service officers, identification technicians, criminalists, and deputy coroners are all represented by the FDSA. The variety of job classifications allows the FDSA to represent both sworn and support personnel throughout the enforcement side of the Fresno Sheriff’s Office.

The FDSA is an active participant in our State Association, Peace Officer’s Research Association of California (PORAC). The FDSA holds a director at large seat on this board.

The Fresno Deputy Sheriff’s Association’s goal is to be an outreach for its members and the community. These goals are achieved when we all come together to reach that common goal. Our main focus is law enforcement, not only for labor aspects, but also to serve the citizens of Fresno County who rely on us for their public safety needs.
