A Message From the Chief

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.

West Covina Police Officers preparing for the Annual Police Unity Tour Challenge Ride

Eleven West Covina Police Officers will be participating in the 2017 Police Unity Tour - Challenge Ride; taking place in the middle of May 2017. This is a 300-mile bicycle ride that is over the span of three consecutive days to bring awareness to America’s fallen heroes. The ride begins in New Jersey and concludes in Washington DC at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. At the rides conclusion the nation’s largest police vigil will take place to remember all those who have sacrificed so much. Today in the United States about 900,000 law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for the safety and protection of others, but that protection comes at a very high price.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial honors America’s fallen law enforcement heroes who have died in the line of duty. Their mission is to tell the story of America’s law enforcement officers and make it safer for those who continue to serve. With every dollar that is raised for the Police Unity Tour we will do our part to honor our nation’s fallen law enforcement officers.
