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.
Introducing the 2016 West Covina PD Citizens Academy Class #1. The first academy session included meeting Police Chief Dave Faulkner, Captain Doug Murray, Lieutenant Jerry Pearman, West Covina City Mayor James Toma, Mayor ProTem Corey Warshaw and Police Chaplain Kelly Dupee. The class was given a department overview by these department heads and then given a guided tour of the Police Department.
We are so pleased at the trememdous response and interest for this academy, the first in many years here at this department. Another is scheduled later this year.
