Sgt. Sandra Brown to Run for Sheriff

Sandra Brown, a 16-year veteran of the Sheriff’s office and currently in charge of the coroner’s bureau, will challenge Sheriff Bill Brown in 2014. The two are unrelated.

She cited an understaffed gang unit and increasing violent crime in Isla Vista, among other issues.
