  Mr. DENHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Stanislaus County

  In 1988, Sheriff Christianson began his storied law enforcement 
career by joining the

Ceres Police Department. He was sworn into the Sheriff's Office in 
January of 1996, where he has served ever since. As Deputy Sheriff he 
filled an impressive variety of roles as Patrol, K9 Handler and 
Supervisor, Bailiff, Field Training Officer and Detective. As Sergeant 
he was assigned to Patrol and supervised the High Tech Crimes Unit. As 
Lieutenant he worked in Homeland Security, Internal Affairs, and was 
the Northwest Area Commander.
  Sheriff Christianson has been a mainstay of the community throughout 
his time in office. Public Safety facilities have been expanded with 
more jail beds, a medical and mental health care unit, and a day 
reporting center, while the significant Public Safety Restoration Plan 
was completed with the support and funding of the Board of Supervisors. 
Sheriff Christianson capped off his tenure in office with the 
completion of the Coroner's Facility and the Re-Entry and Enhanced 
Alternatives to Custody Training (REACT) Center.
  Sheriff Christianson began a stellar academic career by earning a 
Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice Management. He later graduated 
from the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Course, the POST 
Executive Development Course and West Point Leadership in Police 
Organizations. He also received an Executive Certificate from the 
Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training.
  Sheriff Christianson is married to the love of his life, Yvonne. 
Together they have two children, Nicole and Kyle. He is looking forward 
to spending more time with his family after retirement.
  Mr. Speaker, please join me in honoring and commending the 
outstanding contributions made to public safety and Stanislaus County 
by Sheriff Adam Christianson and hereby wish him continued success in 
his future endeavors.
