San Diego Harbor Police Chief Honored

By Karen Robes Meeks

The San Diego County Crime Commission has named the Port of San Diego’s Vice President of Public Safety and Harbor Police Chief Mark Stainbrook the 2019 Law Enforcement Official of the Year.

Stainbrook, who was honored earlier this month, was lauded for his outstanding service to his community.

“The Port of San Diego congratulates Chief Stainbrook for receiving this prestigious honor from the San Diego County Crime Commission,” said Garry Bonelli, chairman of the Board of Port Commissioners. “Since his appointment as Chief in March 2018, he has done a stellar job in leading the Harbor Police team in making San Diego Bay and its tidelands a safer place for our region’s residents and visitors.”

Before coming to the Port of San Diego Harbor Police in November 2011 as Assistant Police Chief, Stainbrook was a lieutenant for the Los Angeles Police Department working in patrol, the gang unit, internal affairs, and intelligence and counterterrorism.
