Culver City Police Chief Scott Bixby has named Capt. Manuel Cid to serve in the position of Acting Police Chief, effective immediately, while Chief Bixby is on medical leave from the City.
Cid was most recently the Administration Bureau Commander responsible for Community and Media Relations, Systems Support, Personnel and Training, Budget and Grants, Records, Property, Reserve Officer Corps and Volunteers in Patrol. He has been with the Culver City Police Department since 2005.
“Chief Cid has done an incredible job as our Emergency Operations Center Director responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Culver City can expect to receive the same high-level of service from its Police Department while he is in charge,” said Mayor Göran Eriksson.
“I appreciate the opportunity to serve and collaborate with all of our residents and businesses during this challenging time, and I look forward to leading the women and men of the CCPD as they serve with pride and professionalism,” said Cid.
