ON DUTY SINCE 2009
SERGEANT BRANDON POLITO
Sergeant Polito worked as a full-time paramedic in Iowa and Santa Clara county for 12 years. He became very interested in law enforcement so that he could focus on preventing tragedies as opposed to just treating them. He became a police officer in Iowa in 2005 and transferred to Scotts Valley in 2009. Sergeant Polito was our department's K9 handler with K9 partner Atlas from 2014 until 2020. Sergeant Polito has a wonderful family and enjoys spending time with them during his time off.
Courage is not the absence of fear. It is merely a decision that something else is more important.
