Congrats to Deputy Yniguez for his superb communication skills and his ability to connect with the inmates in our detention facility.
Last week, Deputy Yniguez deescalated two different inmates, two separate times, from seriously injuring themselves and potentially injuring other deputies.
His Sergeant says, "His ability to calm a situation with his verbal judo is uncanny and impressive, to say the least. It is this type of ability that separates him as a leader on his shift."
Several of our Division Chiefs awarded Deputy Yniguez with their challenge coins that symbolize great leader and character traits.
Well done, sir.
