The citizens of Menlo Park are in for genuine treat as they welcome Chief Jonsen into their police force. I have had the pleasure of working for this man in several capacities from patrol deputy, Field Training Officer, and Sergeant while assigned to both Palmdale and Lancaster Sheriff's Stations (Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department). His innovative ideas and dedication to the communities he serves are a true testament to his character, values and personal integrity. Mr. Jonsen personally counseled and mentored me as a new patrol deputy, and monitored my career to ensure I was successful. I can say his influence greatly impacted my career and helped others develop into the leaders of our department. A close friend, as well as his wife, they will be greatly missed by us...but should be welcomed warmly by you.
