Thank you to the Paris Family!

The SCPOA Board sincerely thanks the Paris family for their generous donation of $10,423.12 from the Robert Paris Jr. Memorial Fund to our Association.

Deputy Bob Paris, age 53, was shot and killed on April 12, 2012, while serving an eviction notice. Deputy Paris was a 16 year veteran with the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office. In 2013, the SCPOA created the "Deputy Robert Lee Paris, Jr. Scholarship Program" in honor of Deputy Paris.
