Sheriff Samuel Osborn says the following:
I have been working alongside John since he first joined the Los Santos Police Department in 2017. I watched him grow into the rank of Captain, and I can without a doubt say that he's the best that the Sheriff's Department has to offer. His dedication and determination are the fuel of the Department, he involves himself in all areas and makes the environment of the Department healthy and open.
When I was looking at candidates for the Undersheriff position, it was clear to me that there was no one more qualified than John. And I am confident that we will now, together, continue developing the Department to become one of the best law enforcement agency that this state has to offer.
- We wish Undersheriff Wallace nothing but the best in his new role as the Undersheriff of the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department.
