The San Diego Sheriff’s substation in Ramona has a new lieutenant. Lt. James Bovet is not just another member of the Sheriff’s Department. He is a 10-year Ramona resident. Bovet was promoted to the position to replace Lt. Julie Sutton, who retired at the end of last month. A department spokesperson said he had been stationed in Fallbrook prior to the newly implemented administrative change.
The soft spoken man said that while his first official day at the Ramona substation was on Monday, this is not the first time he’s worked within the community. His previous tenure was during the years of 2004 and 2005, where he worked as a sergeant. He also worked with a narcotics investigations team in Ramona between the years of 1998 and 2003.
Bovet has more than 23 years of experience working with the San Diego Sheriff’s Department and looks forward to continuing to serve within the community he calls home.
The Ramona Sentinel reported the lieutenant has an extremely diverse background which includes working on cases ranging from homicide, gangs and child abuse. He has also worked within the county’s jail system. Bovet said he looks forward to using his experience to helping keep the streets of Ramona safe from would-be lawbreakers.
