Sonora, CA — Retiring Tuolumne County Under-Sheriff Keith Lunney was given a special honor this morning by the Board of Supervisors.
Lunney was awarded a Certificate of Recognition for his 26-years of service to the county. Lunney began his law enforcement career in the Central Valley and was hired as a Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Deputy in 1986. He rose through the ranks and was named Under-Sheriff in 2008. The County’s Certificate of Recognition states that Lunney had a leading role in many high profile cases, including the Ellie Nesler case, Sund-Pelosso Homicide, and the Russia Homicide.
Lunney also stayed on board and played an instrumental role with the Sheriff’s Office during the Rim Fire response.
Lunney’s retirement took effect last month.
