Sergeant Ray Ulmer, a 27-year Orange County Sheriff’s Department veteran and Aliso Viejo’s Administrative Sergeant, will retire from his post this month.
An outstanding leader, communicator and mentor, Sgt. Ulmer is respected by peers, supervisors and community members alike. Since he began serving Aliso Viejo 3½ years ago, Sgt. Ulmer has gone above and beyond his normal duties to epitomize community policing. In fact, he is deeply involved in this community; active with our schools; a fixture at every event and Neighborhood Watch meeting; and always reassures our schools, residents and businesses that their safety is our top priority.
Sgt. Ulmer has used his expertise in field operations when dealing with planned and unforeseen incidents. He’s often in the field guiding and assisting his peers whenever necessary. In addition, Sgt. Ulmer was responsible for bringing the successful Tip-A-Cop event to Aliso Viejo two years ago. The event benefits local Special Olympic athletes and members in our community.
“Sgt. Ulmer has demonstrated an extraordinary level of dedication to our community and will be greatly missed,” said Lt. John MacPherson.
The City Council on Wednesday, March 15 will recognize Sgt. Ulmer for his outstanding efforts. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 12 Journey.
