2019 Deputy of the Year Diego Estrada

The Fillmore Community Awards Committee & Fillmore Police Department are proud to announce Deputy Diego Estrada as the 2019 Deputy of the Year!

Deputy Diego Estrada is a seven year veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. Diego is married, has three children and lives in Ventura County with his family. Diego began his law enforcement career by attending the Sheriff’s Academy, graduating with class #2 of 2013. After graduating from the academy, Diego worked the custody division prior to being transferred to the Fillmore Station and has been here for a little over two years. During this short time, Diego has risen to the top of his field. He is very active on patrol and has quickly become a strong “beat cop” and an asset to the department. Diego has held a collateral assignment with the Tactical Response Team and was recently selected to the Sheriff’s Special Weapons and Tactics team. Diego was recently selected as one of the station’s gang liaison deputies.

Diego is a military veteran, and prior to becoming a sheriff’s deputy, was enlisted in the Army. Diego served in the Army from 2006 to 2012, and was deployed in Iraq for 18 months during his service. Diego’s military service has in no doubt prepared him for his service on the Sheriff’s Office. He is committed to serving the citizens of Fillmore, and Ventura County with the same reverence as he did the country. While serving the citizens of Fillmore, Diego has committed himself to become familiar with the criminal element and keeping that element from victimizing the citizens of Fillmore.

Due to Covid19, we have, as this time, postponed the Community Awards Reception until mid-June. We will keep the public updated if this changes.
