Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station officials announced the newly appointed sergeant for the Crime Prevention Unit at Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, Sgt. Dan Dantice.
Dantice has been with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for over 26 years.
If his name sounds familiar, it might be because he served as a deputy at the Santa Clarita Valley station for three years, from 2012-15, according to a news release from Sheriff’s Station spokeswoman Shirley Miller.
Two of the three years, he was assigned as one of the zone leaders within the Crime Prevention Unit. Dantice is excited for the opportunity to come back as the sergeant of the unit, and is looking forward to connecting with the community, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.
The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Crime Prevention Unit utilizes partnerships with the community to identify crime trends and implement plans of action to combat issues of concern, according to Sheriff’s Department officials. They also partake in community outreach through events such as Coffee with a Cop.
