Sheriff Rod Hoops will be the guest speaker for the San Bernardino Branch of the NAACP on Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 6:00 at the organization’s office located at New Hope Family Life Center, 1505 W. Highland Ave., San Bernardino.

"We invited him to speak with the organization on the state of the Sheriff's department," said Cheryl Brown, President of the branch.

The meeting is open to the public.

Hoops, 52, of Highland, served as assistant sheriff since 2005, overseeing the patrol, specialized investigations and narcotics divisions, among other areas before being appointed to sheriff in 2009.

He is a 30-year department veteran, and is currently responsible for department-wide operations. He started out as a patrol deputy in the west end of the San Bernardino Valley in 1979. Five years later, he was promoted to detective and assigned to the department’s Career Criminal/SWAT division.

In 1986, Hoops was promoted to sergeant and served as the department’s legislative liaison in Sacramento. He was promoted in 1989 to lieutenant and worked in the public affairs and research and planning divisions, as well as the central station and training academy in Devore.

When he was promoted to captain in 1995, Hoops was assigned to employee services, then went on to command the Rancho Cucamonga station for five years before being reassigned to the bureau of administration.

He was promoted to deputy chief in 2003 and then assistant sheriff in 2005.

Hoops holds a bachelor of arts degree in criminal justice and a masters degree in public administration from Cal State Fullerton.

NAACP is the oldest civil rights organization in the nation.
