Joining the HDSA
Membership to the Honorary Deputy Sheriffs' Association is offered to those individuals who have an interest in supporting law enforcement and specifically the San Diego County Sheriffs' Department.
Members must be of both high character and ethics as well as willing to spend time to support San Diego Law enforcement.
Membership is available at 5 levels
To join the HDSA, you must be a resident of San Diego County or the immediate surrounding counties.
You must be sponsored by someone in the organization who can speak to your good standing as well as provide three letters of reference from friends or business associates.
You must also be at least 21 years of age and pass a thorough background check.
Finally, after review and an interview by our Membership committee, the HDSA Board of Directors will review your application before acceptance.
All members of the HDSA are welcome to attend the five membership luncheons every year, as well as the many special events that are scheduled also.
Members receive the quarterly 10-5, a newsletter giving updates to changes in law enforcement and the activities of law enforcement.
Members may also serve on committees which will interact in the development of the needs of the different departments within the Sheriffs' Department. Once those needs are established, the HDSA will work to fill those needs through its own resources.
How to Apply
Applicants to the HDSA must be nominated and sponsored by a current member, in good standing. The applicant's sponsor can provide the necessary forms by contacting the HDSA administrator.
Our group is limited in number, open by invitation only and reserved for those of distinguished character and notable contributions to business and our community.
