The thing about county sheriffs is that they are the top elected law enforcement official in the county. Literally the next one up on them is the attorney general of the state (not the county). I don't think they answer to the governor.

It is a lot of power and after 32 years he may think his word is law.

The people have the mechanism with which to alleviate this issue. They probably won't use it, but they have it. You have to ask yourself, how has this individual remained Sheriff for 32 years?
We (and the problem is not just in California by any means) have, over a process of years, adopted the mantle of subjects instead of standing up as free people - a much more uncomfortable garment.
Laziness, apathy, ignorance... fear. All the very effective tools of the little dictators amongst us. C'mon in! The water's fine.
