Grand Marshall Bio
Ron Scott

I’m a native Californian, from Monterey County, born in King City, raised through grammar school in Greenfield, moved to Salinas and graduated from North Salinas High School.
After serving my initial enlistment in the United States Coast Reserves I attended Hartnell Junior College, Salinas, and was fortunate to have played on the 1967 Hartnell Panther’s State Champion football team.

Later that year I accepted a job with the Monterey County Probation Department, working in the Juvenile Hall. Life became full when I married my high school sweetheart, Susan. My interest in police work came naturally from my Father, Walter Scott, who served a long career with the Monterey County Sheriff’s Department.

In 1969, I was hired as a Police Officer for the City of Salinas, and in 1971, Susie and I were blessed with the birth of our daughter Katy. Over the twenty one years with Salinas P.D., I rose through the department, holding every rank and most assignments, eventually being promoted to Police Captain. I attending night school at the Monterey Campus of Golden Gate University, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Administration of Justice and a Masters Degree in Public Administration.

In late 1989, I saw an advertisement for the Chief of Police position in Livermore. After a very rigorous selection process, I was fortunate to be selected as Chief of the Livermore Police Department where I served for twelve years.

My greatest satisfaction as Chief were the numerous State and Federal recognitions the department received for our innovative programs, the construction of our new Police Headquarters Building and the ranking of our City in the top fifteen safest Cities nationwide and in the top five safest Cities in California. Of course, this was due to the hard work of all the police personnel.

Susie and I are grateful to our home city of Livermore. In our time here, our daughter Katy met and married a local, Daniel Wade, and we now have two grand-children, Maggie and Samuel Wade. In 2002 I retired to take up Grand-parenting, golf, RV travel and to continue community service through Rotary activities.

I joined the Livermore Rotary Club soon after taking the Chief’s job. The Club was a great way for me to stay in touch with community issues while providing an opportunity to serve in different ways. I am honored to be a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and to have been selected as Rotarian of the Year for 2010-2011. It has been my pleasure to have worked at every Rodeo Parade since joining our club and to have been the Parade Chairman from 2007 through 2011.
