Riverside County Sheriff, Stan Sniff, appointed a local Murrieta resident to the rank of Chief Deputy.

Scot Collins, formerly a Captain, received the promotion to Chief Deputy today, filling a vacancy left open by recent retirements. His new assignment will begin in December.

Chief Deputies in the Riverside Sheriff's Department are at-will employees of the Sheriff and oversee various divisions within the agency. Chief Deputy Collins will be overseeing the Corrections Divisions.

“Scot has the varied experience in the criminal justice system and the formal education that will serve the Department well as one of our executive team members," Sheriff Stan Sniff said. "He has served with distinction in each of his assignments rising through the ranks and we look forward to his contributions to both the Department and the communities we serve in his new capacity.”

Chief Deputy Collins has over 26 years of law enforcement experience, beginning in 1988 with the Sierra County Sheriff's Office. He later joined the Riverside Country Sheriff's Department in 1990.

Previously, in December of 2013, Chief Deputy Collins took command of the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. The Smith Correctional Facility is the largest jail with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, housing 1,520 jail beds and is the largest single command in the department.
