Officer Muse was sworn in on Thursday, November 16th, 2017 and begins his service to our community. Competing in a very challenging selection process, Officer Muse proudly took the oath to serve and protect our city. Officer Muse had law enforcement experience before making the move to SCPD. "His previous training is a benefit to the local force," said Chief Andrew Mills.
Officer Muse was born and raised in Santa Cruz, the youngest of four siblings. He attended Santa Cruz High, during which time he volunteered as a decoy for Police K-9 training. This experience influenced Officer Muse’s decision to pursue a career in law enforcement.
After attending the Monterey Peninsula College Police Academy, Muse did a brief stint as a Police Officer for the Fresno Police Department before returning to Monterey, where he worked for Del Rey Rey Oaks Police Department for 8 years. Well-acquainted with law enforcement, Officer Muse comes to the Santa Cruz Police Department as a lateral transfer.
A married father of three children, Henry also enjoys running, coaching youth sports, watching football and practicing in police K-9 training as a decoy. “I'm really excited to continue my law enforcement career in my hometown,“ said Officer Muse. He undergoes a field training process before being assigned to patrol the City of Santa Cruz as a solo officer.
Please join us in congratulating and welcoming Officer Henry Muse.
