Following graduation from academy in Alameda County; brings total staffing to 98 sworn officers

By Antioch Police Department

Last week, Antioch PD swore in Gustavo Jimenez as a new officer. Captain Tony Morefield administered the oath of office as Jiminez’ parents, District 3 Councilwoman Lori Ogorchock, City Attorney Thomas L. Smith and others looked on.

Gustavo was born in Martinez and was raised in Brentwood, graduating from Liberty High School. While there, he played football and was a referee for soccer matches. While being a referee, he traveled all over the US. He officiated in the highest level of youth soccer in the nation, and for adult teams, he was a referee at the semiprofessional level.

Captain Trevor Schnitzius and Officer Joseph Chandler were honored to attend the Alameda County Police Academy graduation in May and welcome our newest academy grad.

During his free time, he enjoys working on cars, working out, and playing video games. A fun fact about Gustavo is he has been riding his motorcycle longer than he has been driving a car.

Welcome, Gustavo!

With his addition there are 98 sworn officers currently on staff with the department out of 115 authorized in the budget, and 49 on full duty.
