After the tragic events that occurred on 9/11, Renee left her position as a technical writer at LSI Logic, to serve her community as a Deputy Sheriff with the Santa Clara County Sheriffs Office. Renee became the first Farsi speaking female police officer to graduate from the police academy in Northern California. Renee continues to have a strong connection with local law enforcement and, in partnership with the administration of justice program at West Valley College, provides social justice and equity training to officers. As a Council member, Renee will work with our local law enforcement to ensure our community's safety and protect our residents from crime. Renee will continue to work with the community to strengthen the Neighborhood Watch program. We encourage every community member to share their concerns and support their neighborhood through this method. Together, we can prevent criminal activities and build stronger relationships with each other.
