District Commanders

As part of the 2020-2023 Strategic Plan to strengthen community partnerships, increase collaboration and accountability, and streamline problem solving efforts in each area of town, a Ventura Police Commander has been assigned to each of the Neighborhood Community Councils and to the Downtown Ventura Partners.

Each of our six Commanders and our Assistant Chief work directly with the City Council member from each district to better serve our residents and businesses in that area of Ventura.

Have a question that might be better suited for a Police Corporal? Get in touch with your Beat Coordinator!
