Arcadia City Manager Don Penman distributed an email this afternoon announcing that he has appointed Bob Guthrie as the Chief of Police for the Arcadia Police Department. Please join the men and women of the Arcadia Police Department in congratulating Chief Bob Guthrie.
It is my pleasure to announce that I have appointed Bob Guthrie as Chief of Police, effective immediately.
Bob began his career in Arcadia in 1989 as a Cadet and subsequently worked his way through the ranks, having served in various positions and on a number of special assignments. Bob brings to the position strong communication skills and an extensive, well-rounded knowledge of all facets of law enforcement. These skills, combined with enthusiasm and a strong commitment to public safety in this community, will serve him well in his new role. I have every confidence that Bob will do an outstanding job as Arcadia’s newest Police Chief.
