Jeff Mason

Hello and thanks for visiting my page.  My name is Jeff Mason and I am an adjunct facilty member working in the Administration of Justice programs.  I began my police career in 1983, when I was hired by the El Centro Police Department.  I worked my way through a variety of assignments and ranks.  Currently I am the West Division Commander, responsible for one half of the patrol operations, the administrative operations; recruitment, hiring, volunteers and I am also the Press Information Officer. 

I graduated from the Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute, class 175, and I am especially proud to be a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy, class 228.

Twenty years ago I began my relationship with Imperial Valley College.  I was given the oppertunity to volunteer as a role player in scenario training for the academy students.  The next year I was given a chance to instruct some courses in the academy.  Every semester since I have been involved in instructing or coordinating academy courses and  teaching administration of justice classes. 

With my pending retirement from police work, I am looking forward to being able to take on additional assignments at the college and having more interaction with students.

Although I am not a native of Imperial County, I have lived here more than half my life.  My wife and I have 3 wonderful children, and we feel fortunate to have raised them here, where being part of the community has real meaning.
