Our friend, Don Elliott Sr. passed on December 19, 2014. Don spent more than 30 years of his life directing the Ventura County Police and Sheriff's Reserve Officer Academy in Camarillo, CA. There he mentored countless young men and women entering the law enforcement profession. Most officers and deputies, regular and reserve in the Ventura County area knew him well and have been through his program. He was tough, fair, had a big heart and inspired thousands. A truly great man, indeed.
Former graduates of this academy program are invited to comment and share memories on the Ventura County Police and Sheriff's Academy Facebook page:
