Chief of Police

Lt. Shigo PhotoThe City of Rosemead, in conjunction with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD), is pleased to announce the appointment of LASD Lieutenant Paul Shigo as Rosemead’s new Chief of Police.

Lieutenant Shigo has served the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department for over thirty years. His LASD career began as a Deputy Sheriff at the LASD Men’s Central Jail and, after a couple of years, moved to the LASD Norwalk Station where he served in the roles of Field Training Officer, Special Assignment Officer, and was a part of the Whittier County Violent Crime Suppression Task Force. Lieutenant Shigo was later assigned to the East Los Angeles and Compton Sheriff’s Stations, where he served in the Operation Safe Streets Bureau as a Gang Investigator and Gang Enforcement Deputy.

Lieutenant Shigo was promoted to Sergeant and assigned to the Century Sheriff’s Station, where he served as Patrol Sergeant and then Service Area Sergeant. He was also assigned as Sergeant for the City of Lynwood, where he focused on neighborhood watch meetings, special problems, prostitution abatement, gang suppression, City parks, transients, and routine patrol. Lieutenant Shigo’s investigative and supervisory experience will be an incredible asset in his role as Chief of Police.

“I am honored to have been selected as your Rosemead Chief of Police. I vow to continue providing the Tradition of Service and excellence provided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department through relentless crime-fighting and community partnership,” Shigo said. “The Rosemead Special Assignment Team will continue to provide the highest level of law enforcement while working closely with the community and focusing on safety and quality of life issues.”
