A Message From the Chief

Richard Bell grew up in the City of Pasadena. He started his law enforcement career as a Reserve Officer with the Monrovia Police Department in 1995. In 1996, Richard was hired by the San Marino Police Department, and was assigned to the Patrol Division. In 1999 Richard joined the West Covina Police Department Family.




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.
