Sheriff to address ‘Breakfast Club’

Sacramento County Sheriff Lou Blanas will talk on “Security in the Sacramento Region” at the next installment of the Breakfast Club Speakers Series, hosted by the CSUS Alumni Association. Blanas will speak at 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, March 9 in the Alumni Center on campus.

The free events, which include breakfast, feature a range of guests speaking on hot topics in the Sacramento region in a low-key, off-the-record format that allows audience interaction.

CSUS alumnus Blanas began his career in 1968 as a police officer with the Sacramento Police Department. In 1981 he accepted a position as chief of the California Sate Fair Police. He joined the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department in 1987 as community relations and commander of the sheriff’s staff division.

Since then he has worked in various assignment including commander of the narcotic-gang division, chief deputy of county security service and chief deputy of patrol services. He was appointed undersheriff in 1993 and in March 2002 was reelected to serve a second term as sheriff of Sacramento County. Blanas is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy in Quantico, Va. and completed the National Executive Institute of the FBI. He holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from CSUS.

His talk is sponsored by the Criminal Justice Chapter of the CSUS Alumni Association.

Seating is limited. For reservations or additional information, contact the Alumni Association at (916) 278-6295.
