Western Division Team

The Western Division Command Staff includes four Lieutenants who cover all three watches. Their range of experience is from 15 to 24 years in law enforcement. Each Lieutenant has led a unique career path. Their former assignments include but are not limited to Narcotics, Burglary, Gang Investigations, Assaults/Juvenile/Missing Persons and Internal Affairs. Crime Prevention Specialists Mini Le and Rosana Carrasco are also an integral part of our team.   Combined they have over 20 years of experience educating community members on how to make their neighborhoods safer. I have the utmost confidence my staff will provide the best service possible despite the current budgetary and staffing limitations.

Crime Prevention Tip

Warmer weather means longer days, outdoor activities, fresh air, yard work and vacations.  However, open entry doors, garage doors, and windows and time spent away from home also provide more time, access and opportunities for burglars.  You can enjoy the warmer weather and protect yourself from home burglary by following a few easy tips:

  • Occupy rooms when doors, sliding doors, and windows are open.
  • Remember to close and lock doors and windows when away from home even for short periods of time.
  • Close garage doors while doing yard work to keep personal property, especially tools and bikes, safe and out of sight.
  • Close and lock side gates after yard work or family events.
  • Make your home look lived in while away. Make sure your landscaping is cared for, your interior lights are on timers and your neighbors are on watch for suspicious activity or visitors.
