Ventura County Community Gets New Police Chief

A Ventura County community has a new Police Chief. Ventura County Sheriff’s Captain Victor Fazio is the City of Moorpark’s new top cop.

He’s been with the Sheriff’s Office for more than two decades, working with everything from criminal investigations to narcotics enforcement. He helped create and run the county’s Pharmaceutical Crimes Unit, which is focused on tackling the opioid abuse problem.

Fazio takes over the post from John Reilly, who was promoted to commander and will oversee patrol services for Eastern Ventura County.

Lance Orozco has been News Director of KCLU since 2001, providing award-winning coverage of some of the biggest news events in the region, including the Thomas and Woolsey brush fires, the deadly Montecito debris flow, the Borderline Bar and Grill attack, and Ronald Reagan's funeral.
