Police Officers are the most visible aspect of any police department. For this reason, we are committed to providing excellent front line law enforcement service to our residents and visitors. We will accomplish this by serving the citizens of West Covina with the highest ethical standards and professionalism, achieving the Department’s motto of “Integrity and Service since 1937.” I am proud to serve as your Chief of Police and hope you will join with us making the City of West Covina a safe place to work and play.
About two-thirds of all sworn officers work in this division, which focuses on patrolling city streets, answering calls for service, and identifying potential crime problems. Under the Community Service Area Policing program, four dedicated lieutenants and their crews are assigned a specific quadrant of the City and tasked with resolving public safety concerns for residents, neighborhoods, and businesses. This division includes the Traffic Unit, the K-9 Unit, Jail Operations, Reserve Officers, Police Cadets and award-winning SHOP senior volunteers who perform non-hazardous duties to free up sworn officers.
Brandon Burdick brought Jaden and Joseph Rosas by the police station to meet all the police officers. The boys met with detectives and all the hard working employees here and had a great time. Detective Dave Sifling had the pleasure of spending some time with the boys who want to become police officers in the future. They both raised their right hands and promised to be thankful for what they have and to always do good while working hard in school.
