Ron Cochran, captain of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Highland station, was promoted to deputy chief. Cochran is the first African-American to hold the rank in the department’s 156-year history. Cochran says a racial profiling incident 25 years ago led him to join the department in 1984. “I wanted to make a difference from the inside. I think we’ve made progress in that area but there are still gaps. I feel Sheriff Ron Hoops is committed to ensuring an equitable department from the inside out,” he said.
