Glendora Police Chief Rob Castro has been chosen to lead the city of Glendale's police department.
Castro was introduced as the city's next police chief at the Oct. 22 Glendale City Council Meeting, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The decision was made earlier in the day during Glendale's closed session meeting.
Castro reportedly has been going through the process with Glendale for roughly a month or so, said Tim Staab, captain of the Glendora Police Department.
Castro will replace outgoing Glendale Police Chief Ron de Pompa.
An alumni of Azusa Pacific University, Castro was chosen to head the Glendora Police Department in January 2011.
“As chief, I want to try to shape the future of policing in Glendora by reducing alcohol and drugs use, improving the flow of traffic and reaching out to the homeless community,” Castro said in a 2011 article from APU's student newspaper, The Clause.
Castro began his career with Glendora Police almost 30 years ago.
Castro will take over Glendale's post Dec. 16, officials said.
