Join us in welcoming two new officers to Palm Springs PD. Officer Troy Lawrence recently retired from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department after 27 years. He comes to us with a wealth of knowledge in tactics, investigations, firearms and training experience. Officer Lawrence also served with the United States Marine Corps in the 1980's and was promoted to the rank of Corporal. He received numerous awards and commendations from both the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and the United States Marine Corps. He will will be assisting the Palm Springs PD with staffing of our airport bureau. He is married with children.
Officer Alfredo Lopez is a lateral police officer who worked for the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Jail Division for the past couple of years. He too served in the United States Marine Corps and was promoted to the rank of Master Sergeant. Mr. Lopez attended the University of Phoenix and is married with children.
We are lucky to have these men join our organization and look forward to them serving the City of Palm Springs.
