Retired South Coast police chief tapped to head bureau in Ventura County DA's office
Scott Whitney brings three decades of law enforcement experience to position.
A longtime Ventura County law enforcement officer has come out of retirement to join the County District Attorney’s Office.
Former Oxnard Police Chief Scott Whitney will lead the DA’s Bureau of Investigation.
Whitney was with the Oxnard Department for nearly for three decades, including his last five years as chief. He was so well known as a leader the city tapped him to be Assistant City Manager, and at one point he served as interim City Manager.
Whitney will take over the Chief Investigator’s post from Mike Baray, who is stepping down after heading the 68 person bureau for nearly a decade.
