A Simi Valley resident who’s a member of the Beverly Hills Police Department is no longer going to have to commute to work.
Mitch McCann has been appointed as Simi Valley Police Chief, effective July 16th.
McCann has been with the Beverly Hills department for 24 years, and is currently that agency’s Field Services Division Captain.
He’ll fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Chief Mike Lewis last December. The Simi Valley department has 180 employees, and a $28 million dollar annual budget.
