Welcome to Our Newest Police Officer - Chris Galli

Ladies and Gentlemen...Please give a hearty Santa Cruz welcome to our newest Police Officer……Chris Galli

Today we held a “swearing-In” ceremony for the latest addition to the force. 

Chris comes with a fine family history of public safety service.  His father, John Galli worked for the Santa Cruz Police Department until 1989.  John eventually opened his own uniform supply business “Galli Gear” where Chris worked as a young aspiring officer.  We are very excited and proud to see the family legacy continue here.  

Chris brings solid experience from the past 2 ½ years where he worked as a Peace Officer for the California State Parks system.  He was stationed out in the Mohave Desert where he learned to hone his law enforcement skills and handle incidents with scarce resources and backup.  Even in the middle of Nowhere USA, Chris managed to stay very productive. 

We’re betting he will be a whirlwind of activity on the streets of Santa Cruz.  Chris, you’re not in Kansas anymore!!

Please join us in welcoming Chris to the Santa Cruz Police Department family.
