San Diego Police Sergeant Arrested on Suspicion of Soliciting Minor For Sex

Joseph Ruvido, 49, a 21-year veteran of the department, was taken into custody without incident at his home around 9 p.m. on July 26. Ruvido was in the United States Navy and was even in the Gulf War.

On July 24, a tip came in via crime stoppers naming Ruvido as a suspect involving sex crimes with minors.

Upon receiving the tip, the department immediately opened a criminal investigation and began gathering information and evidence which included 24-7 surveillance with cooperation from the San Diego District Attorney’s Office, NBC San Diego reports.

After the investigation which included a search warrant of Ruvido’s home, the suspect was arrested.

San Diego Police Department Chief David Nisleit says:

“We understand that we are held to a higher standard. We want to be held to a higher standard, and we need to be held to a higher standard. When we have a member go out and tarnish that badge, it hurts us all.”

The department said the investigation is ongoing and did not identify any other arrests. Police said Ruvido was released from jail on $100,000 bail. Ruvido has been suspended from duty without pay. Ruvido worked in the watch commanders office where he approved bookings and reports.

Ruvido was highlighted in 2016 for his service in the U.S. Navy for eight years. He was deployed in the first Gulf War (Desert Shield & Desert Storm) with the 1st Marine Division 1st Tank Battalion from 1990-1991.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
