The Rotary Club of Oxnard is honored to have Sheriff-Elect Bill Ayub share his knowledge and wisdom gained through decades of service to our community. As sheriff, Bill Ayub will oversee more than 1,200 employees, including 700 sworn officers, in five cities and in the unincorporated areas of Ventura County. Join us for lunch and learn the important issues Bill Ayub plans to address as our new Sheriff. He will also supervise the agency’s specialized units and manage the department’s multimillion-dollar budget. Ayub is looking at a “top-down review of the department” to reorganize staff and evaluate technology in the agency. When he officially becomes sheriff in January, Ayub’s first order of business will be to fill two vacancies in the agency’s executive team following the retirements this year of current Sheriff Geoff Dean and Undersheriff Gary Pentis. Ayub plans to maintain an economically conservative budget, keeping costs down as the department continues its operations. “I realize that if we’re not continuously paying attention, we’ll be using yesterday’s technology when there could be something better or cheaper,” he said. 
 
When he’s not working, Ayub enjoys running and bicycling outdoors, unplugging from social media and spending time with friends outside the agency, “something that’s kept me grounded over the years.” Ayub also stays grounded with support from Stacey, his wife of 26 years; his stepdaughter, Brittany, 32; and his sons, Braeden, 24, and Blake, 21.
