A Message From the Chief

Welcome to the West Covina Police Department.  I am proud to serve as your police chief. The men and women who make up the department are committed to providing the best policing services to the community.  This is carried out through the adherence to the Police Department’s Core Values, which are; Community Responsiveness, Integrity, Teamwork, and Effort.  We are very fortunate to have the support of the community and work hard to ensure the public’s trust.  Please feel free to browse our website and follow us in social media for the latest updates affecting the City.



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.
