History of the SOA.

The Sheriff's Office Association was established on May 9, 1951 with James Moudakas as the first President. The purpose of the Association was and continues to be to aid a distressed member, his or her dependent, a member's widow or widower or his or her orphaned children. Officers of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office Association are elected by majority and secret ballot.
