Santa Clarita Residents Invited to Meet New Chief of Police
City to Host Meet and Greet for Captain Robert Lewis
Captain Robert Lewis was recently named as the new captain for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, bringing more than 30 years of law enforcement experience with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to his new post.
Lewis was named as Santa Clarita’s police chief in March, replacing Captain Roosevelt Johnson who was promoted to commander. Johnson served as the chief of police for the Santa Clarita Valley station since 2014.
The City will host an Open House Meet and Greet for the community on Thursday, May 18, 2017, from 5 to 7 p.m. at City Hall in the Century Room, 23920 Valencia Blvd., 1st floor. The event is free and open to the public.
Captain Lewis returns to the Santa Clarita Valley station after spending the last year as a lieutenant at the Training Bureau in the Advanced Officer Training Unit. He began his law enforcement career in Santa Clarita as a law enforcement intern and was most recently assigned to the Santa Clarita Valley station from 2007-2014. In his career, Captain Lewis has also worked throughout Los Angeles County, with assignments in Malibu, West Hollywood and Altadena.
Captain Lewis holds a bachelor’s degree in science, vocational and occupational studies from California State University, Long Beach.
“As a longtime resident of the Santa Clarita Valley, I am looking forward to serving the community I call home,” said Captain Lewis. “I welcome the opportunity to meet with residents and find out their top public safety concerns, as well as share my priorities for keeping the community safe.”
Captain Lewis and his family reside in the Santa Clarita Valley.
