On Feb. 6, City Council honored Orange County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Anthony Franco as the 2017 Deputy of the Year.
Farias presented the award to Franco at the city council meeting, with some 20 Sheriff’s deputies in the audience.
“Being a constant professional, Deputy Franco makes nightly arrests on narcotics offenders, subjects with stolen vehicles, burglars, felons and gang members,” Farias said. “Franco constantly conducts proactive policing late at night by patrol checking businesses and local problem areas.”
With his experience, Franco is now one of the most tenured training officers to new deputies, Farias said.
