Message from the Chief of Police

Gates.jpgI began my law enforcement career with the Pomona Police Department in 1993 as an officer. My assignments were patrol and helicopter flight officer for two years. In 1999 I made the decision to lateral to the San Bernardino Police Department where I worked a variety of assignments as a patrol officer to include vice/narcotics and problem oriented policing. I eventually promoted to the rank of detective working District Crimes, Specialized Crimes, Robbery Unit, and a brief stint in Homicide. I then promoted to sergeant where I remained for ten years (eight years patrol and two years Community Policing). After promoting to the rank of lieutenant I was assigned to manage the department's Dispatch Center and Records Bureau which is where I remained until accepting my current position with RCCD Police Department.
