Scott Johnston

pictured here with a very cute adoptable from the

San Diego Humane Society

'San Diego's Finest' Police Officer for 32 years, Scott Johnston. Scott has received multiple awards for life saving, and he received SDPD's first Purple Heart for rescuing two officers down by 10 gang members. Scott was shot in the process.

Scott looks forward to 'retiring' this summer to spend more time with his family, and to work on improving and expanding The Social Diary.

Scott enjoys surfing, sushi, and a plate of great pasta. He also enjoys playing golf....his game is a work in progress!

Scott has enjoyed a career of helping people and animals. He now looks forward to helping others more through charity work and charity coverage on The Social Diary.
