Police Chief Michael Harris has announced his retirement, effective August 14, 2020. Chief Harris has served as the Chief of Police for the past seven years. During his time, Chief Harris led the Livermore Police Department (LPD) in developing the “Six Pillars.” These pillars (Public Safety and Crime Prevention; Accountability and Public Trust; Community Engagement; Quality Service; Innovation and Best Practices; and Employee Development, Wellness and Succession Planning) defined a foundation of values and priorities for the organization. Chief Harris also developed and implemented the Area Command model to strengthen our relationships with the community and expanded community engagement programs such as the Citizen’s Police Academy, Coffee with a Cop, and Stuff-A-Cruiser. Chief Harris made it a priority to hire community-oriented officers, including the 39 LPD staff who were hired under his leadership. “As excited as I am about the next chapter in my life, this was not an easy decision to make,” said Harris. “Over the past seven years, I have come to love this place. I am proud of what the Livermore Police Department has accomplished in partnership with the community and know that the LPD will continue to do great things.”
Like so many of you, we were shocked and saddened after watching the video of the officer from the Minneapolis Police Department kneeling on the neck of George Floyd during an arrest that ended in his death.
We want our community to know that the actions taken by the officers on that video were wrong, this is not how we train or what we expect from our officers and in fact goes against what wearing the badge represents.
The Livermore Police Department sends our condolences to the Floyd family and to all who have been impacted by this tragedy and we remain committed to service with honor and protection with purpose.
