Santa Clarita Valley Station has New Chief of Police

| News | March 16, 2017

A local sheriff’s lieutenant who has served the Santa Clarita Valley for several years was chosen to become captain of the Santa Clarita Valley station. Captain Robert Lewis was recently selected to be Santa Clarita’s chief of police, bringing 31 years of law enforcement experience to his new post.

“The City of Santa Clarita is thrilled to have someone of Captain Lewis’ experience, commitment and knowledge of our city in this role,” said City Manager Ken Striplin. “We look forward to working together and building upon the top-notch public safety services our community enjoys on a daily basis.”

Robert Lewis is replacing Sheriff’s Captain Roosevelt Johnson who was recently promoted to commander. Johnson served as the chief of police for the Santa Clarita Valley Station since 2014.

Lewis began his law enforcement career right here in Santa Clarita as a law enforcement intern. Since then, his career has taken him throughout Los Angeles County, with stints in Malibu, West Hollywood and Altadena. He has also spent several years at the Santa Clarita Valley Station, which he will now oversee, most recently from 2007-2014. He has spent the last year as a lieutenant at the Training Bureau, in the Advanced Officer Training Unit. Lewis has a bachelor’s degree in Science, Vocational and Occupational Studies from California State University, Long Beach.

“I have always sought assignments which would maximize my knowledge to benefit the community I serve, the Department, as well as further my own personal growth,” said Captain Lewis. “I am certain that the knowledge, skills and abilities I have gained will allow me to be an asset to the Santa Clarita community.”
