Wayne Quint has announced his retirement from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and he has resigned as President of the AOCDS (Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs), according to a press release which indicated that he is taking an undisclosed job in state government.
Quint won his long-running battle against the O.C. Board of Supervisors this year – as the courts refused to roll back the ridiculously generous pensions that previous Supervisors handed out to the Deputy Sheriffs.
Quint has held numerous leadership positions over the years, including:
- President, California Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations
- President, California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation
- Treasurer, California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation
- Secretary, Golden Badge Foundation
I am not sure what job it is Quint is taking. A quick scan of Google News turned up nothing tonight, but I imagine he has been granted some sort of appointment by Governor Jerry Brown.
Quint will be replaced as President of the AOCDS by Thomas Dominguez, who has been serving as Treasurer of the AOCDS.
Here is the press release from the AOCDS announcing Quint’s retirement:
