When Futi Semanu joined the Santa Ana Ana Police Department in 1975, he was the only Samoan police officer in all of Orange County. Now, 17 years later, Semanu lives among a local Samoan population that has grown to more than 28,000. Yet he remains the county's only Samoan officer--a distinction he's eager to part with. "This is a good profession and a good job," Semanu said. "The Samoans need to get into more of the professional fields to help their people and help them understand the system."
