One of Orange County's Best Kept Secrets, Cypress is an ideal place to live and work. Located in northwestern Orange County, on the Los Angeles County border, Cypress has a population of approximately 50,000.  Just five miles from some of Southern California's nicest beaches, it is a community of well-planned and maintained neighborhoods with a strong sense of community pride. Residents and businesses appreciate a blend of small town charm and big city diversity, low crime, quality education and exceptional recreation opportunities.

The Cypress Police Department and its annual budget of approximately $18.2 million are divided into three divisions: Operations, Investigations and Administration. Cypress is seeking a strong and passionate leader to serve as Police Commander. The Commander will report directly to the Chief of Police and oversees one of the three divisions on a rotating basis. The new Police Commander is expected to have an inclusive management style, possess ethical standards and have a passion for community engagement.

A Bachelor's degree, preferably in Criminal Justice, Communications, Business/Public Administration from an accredited college or university and two years of experience as a Police Sergeant or above are required. Candidates must conform to California Commission on Peace Officers Standards and Training guidelines including possession of a POST Supervisory Certificate.
