A Ventura County city has promoted a veteran member of its police department to become its new police chief.
David Livingstone is Simi Valley’s new top cop. Livingstone has spent his entire 26 year law enforcement career with the Simi Valley department, rising through its ranks. He was the department’s Deputy Chief, and has served as interim chief since Mitch McCann retired from the agency’s top post last December.
Livingstone will oversee a department with 178 uniformed and civilian personnel, and a nearly $33 million dollar annual budget.
