OCEA members in the Orange County Sheriff’s Department are represented by union stewards and a professional staff of labor relations representatives. Standing together, every OCEA member in the Orange County Sheriff’s Department plays a role in achieving better wages, retirement security and fair rights on the job.
The information below is a resource for all OCEA members in the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. Below, you will find a list of stewards and staff representatives for OCEA members assigned to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. You’ll also find the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which is the negotiated union contract that sets forth the wages, hours and working conditions guiding your employment. And you can also find updates and news from OCEA about what’s happening in your agency and across the County.
Whether you are the target of a civil or criminal action, or are involved in a critical incident, the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) Legal Defense Fund has your back. This legal insurance is only available to eligible job classifications. Find out more information about the OCEA POPL / PORAC LDF here
