City welcomes two new police officers, recognizes Halloween event

City Council Update

At the Nov. 6 City Council meeting, Chief Richard Standridge introduced two new police officers prior to being sworn in by Mayor Michael Davies.

Officer Michael Gregorio comes to Tehachapi from Nevada County where he worked in the jail. Gregorio was pinned by his father Ed.

Reserve Officer Robert Haymond comes from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Haymond was pinned by his wife Connie. Haymond is a commercial pilot with Air Force training, so will be a reserve officer as he may be called away for flight duty in case of an emergency.

The City of Tehachapi also recognized Go2Girlz, the Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce and the more than 40 local businesses that put together the Downtown Trick or Treat Trail on Halloween night, which created a safe and successful event for the community.

The event attracted hundreds of families giving them the opportunity to explore Downtown. City Hall participated as one of the sites and reported nothing but positive feedback.

The Tehachapi City Council meets on the first and third Monday of the month at 6 p.m. They are currently meeting at the Police Department Community Room, 220 W. C St.
