Detective Juan Gallegos Retires After 22 Years

Happy Retirement
THANK YOU, Detective Juan Gallegos!
Today is Sergeant Juan Gallegos’ last day. We'd like to take this time to congratulate Juan for his long and local law enforcement career.
Juan was hired in 1995 and hit the ground running, working on assignments such as patrol, school resource officer, alcohol enforcement unit, field training officer, investigations, and many ATV shifts on the beach.
Juan’s favorite aspect of working for Santa Cruz PD was the men and women he worked beside daily. “I will miss the camaraderie amongst the officers," said Detective Gallegos, "and, I will also miss the interesting and valuable relationships with the community in Santa Cruz.”
Juan credits the people he worked with and the relationships he built over his 22-year career as a key to his long and happy tenure at SCPD.
Please join us in a fond farewell to Juan, who will be missed by his co-workers, and the community. 
Thank you for your service, Juan.
