Fresno Deputy Sheriff's Association

Representing more than 650 active employees.

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.

EOW: September 8, 1997

Today we honor a fallen Fresno County Sheriff Deputy Jeff Isaac who was killed in the line of duty, Sept 8, 1997, 20 years ago – a solo vehicle accident near the City of Reedley CA, and only minutes from where Jeff and his family lived. 

To date we still don’t really know what happened the night of the vehicle accident which took Jeff’s life. Many of you hired with Jeff were working the night he was killed. The heartbreaking thing about is Jeff was alive and talking at the crash site. He died as a result of the crash at UMC Hospital. Jeff left behind a young family, along with loving parents and siblings who I know miss him deeply each day. 

Jeff was such a great guy and was very well liked by the community he served. Jeff cared about the community he lived in. I saw this quality first hand on many occasions while working as a partner with Jeff back in my early days as a 108 reserve.  Those of you who worked around Jeff remember that quality. 

Spencer and Chantelle, Jeff’s children, have grown up to be beautiful and successful adults. Jeff Isaac was an honorable man and it shows through his children as well through his family. 

Take the time today to remember Jeff. 

We will always honor him and we will never forget him. God Bless

A Message from the President, February 2018

As we slowly exit winter, the blossoms signal spring and a warm up on the political front both nationally and here in Fresno County. As budgets are built, reviewed, debated, scrutinized and then allocated- we can see how the funding process impacts law enforcement. Some budget items (namely federal and state resources) have a trickle- down effect that is most visible when it reaches local jurisdictions.
