Sgt. Christine Nagaye says that she would de-encrypt police radios if she is elected as Santa Clara County Sheriff, so the public could once again listen to police activity. 

“The biggest change, day one, would be addressing transparency right out of the gate,” she said.

Nagaye said that she is the most progressive candidate in the four-way race. She is facing off against Sgt. Sean Allen, Palo Alto police Chief Robert Jonsen and retired sheriff’s Capt. Kevin Jensen. She would give critical race theory training to officers and offer more college classes in the jail.

Nagaye said she is the only candidate working with deputies on the front line in the jail, and she is the only lifelong Democrat. “I am not from the old-school policing that unfortunately my counterparts are,” she said.
