Letters Of Interest


Don't forget all Letters of Interest MUST be resubmitted at the start of the new year!

All Letters of Interest must be submitted to Administrative Services and if you are concerned of a letter getting lost, you can send a copy to ocdsainformation@gmail.com and I will keep a printed copy in case of any discrepancy that may arise.

Recent Events Involving A Member

By now you are aware that one of our own has been falsely and maliciously charged with a crime that he did not commit. This was a decision made by the prosecutor’s office.
President Mance and I were with this member through every step of the process today. We know all of you were also with him in spirit and we will continue to stand by him and support him through this extremely difficult time.
We wanted to update you all as soon as possible and let you know that this board will not tolerate malicious prosecution of its members. President Mance and our attorney are working on a lengthier statement to be released at a later date.
Stay safe and take care of one another.

OCDSA Luncheon with Santa, December 5th UPDATE!!!

Well, COVID-19 has struck yet again! Due to changes in the most recent guidelines for COVID-19 and social distancing, your OCDSA Christmas Party has to make some huge adjustments.

Since the restriction addresses no "buffet style" meals to be served and capacity of indoor spaces not to exceed 50 people, the Christmas Party is being moved to the hours of 2PM - 5PM. NO food will be served!

Regretfully, and much thought was put into this, but we are asking EVERYONE to resubmit if they are wanting to attend or not. People are going to be allowed in 1 family at a time to have their picture taken with Santa, the children will get their gift and then the next family will be allowed in.

Please make a reservation to ocdsaapp2020@gmail.com and the Name / Age / Gender of each child.

There will be a Members Only raffle held at 5PM, which will be done through Facebook just like the Summer Raffle.

Emails must be received by November 21, 2020.

Deputy Rick Bolden “Ricky B”

With a heavy heart the OCDSA announces the passing of one of our own, retired Deputy Rick Bolden.

He embodied kindness and integrity and his soul is the very definition of selflessness.

His legacy will live on forever in our hearts as we will be reminded of him in the beauty of a flower, the warmth of a sunny day and the touch of the wind upon our faces.

To know Rick was to love him and everyone who met him left a better person than before the introduction.

Arrangements will be shared as soon as they are announced.

We love you and honor you, Deputy Rick Bolden.
