The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of Correctional Officer Randy Villalobos.

On Friday morning the 33 year old was on his way home from work, riding his motorcycle, when he collided with a pickup truck near the intersection of West and Princeton Avenues in Fresno.  Medical treatment efforts were made to save Randy, but he passed away due to his injuries.  The Fresno Police Department is handling the investigation of the crash.

Correctional Officer Randy Villalobos began his employment the with the Fresno County Sheriff's Office in June of 2013.  During his 7 ½ year career, he worked in all three jail facilities.  In June of 2018, Randy’s supervisor selected him to be the Employee of the Month for our entire office.

Randy was known for being an exemplary officer, keen on sharing his knowledge with his peers.  He worked to make sure new correctional officers were up-to-date and able to respond to any situation within all housing facilities.  The dedication and enthusiasm Randy put into assigned job tasks was admirable.  He was one to lead by example through his work and his ability to help others. He served as a true asset to the Sheriff's Office and the community we serve.

Correctional Officer Randy Villalobos is survived by his mother, father, fiancée and a young child.
