Del Mar welcomes new sheriff captain

By Kristina Houck

Del Mar welcomed Theresa Adams-Hydar as its new sheriff captain during the May 5 City Council meeting.

Joining the Encinitas station on April 18, Adams-Hydar oversees the day-to-day operations of the station, which covers Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and neighboring communities.

“I want to welcome you on board,” said City Manager Scott Huth.

A San Diego native, Adams-Hydar has worked for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department for 19 years. She has spent the majority of her career in North County, on patrol and investigative assignments in Vista, San Marcos and Fallbrook with the North County Regional Gang Task Force. She has also served as the department’s background investigations sergeant for hiring personnel, as well as the internal affairs lieutenant.

Adams-Hydar replaces former Sheriff’s Captain Robert Hailey, who recently retired.

“I’m excited about this new move in my career,” Adams-Hydar said. “I’m excited about working with the communities around the coast.”
