Chief Hoffman

I am excited to serve the City of Redondo Beach as the Chief of Police. Over the course of my career, I have had the honor to work a variety of assignments with many great leaders and mentors who helped shape my path, allowing me now to work with the members of the Department, City Staff, and residents to implement a roadmap for continued success.  I fully embrace the Police Department vision “We Are the Community – Leading the Way in Law Enforcement.” Being inclusive, empowering, realistic, ethical, and conscientious are critical components of the Police Department service model and coincide directly with our vision.  We value input from all stakeholders to allow for a rational and well-balanced process that promotes transparency and credibility in the pursuit of increasing the level of Trust and Safety within the community.  I am very proud of every member of the Redondo Beach Police Department and I am excited to lead the organization into a successful future.
