BEVERLY HILLS—Assistant  Chief  Marc  Coopwood  advised  top  City  Officials  earlier  this  week  he  will  be  resigning from the his position on October 1 to pursue other opportunities in the private sector.

Coopwood came to the BHPD from the Sacramento Police Department in 2017 after serving for 22 years. He is also the Past President of the California Peace Officers’ Association.

“It has been one of the greatest honors and opportunities of my professional career to work with the women and men at BHPD and with our City leadership team. Together, we have created and advanced some key initiatives and policies to keep our community safe and secure,” said Coopwood.

During his tenure with the Beverly Hills police Department , Coopwood developed and implemented a comprehensive security infrastructure plan that has reduced crime annually since 2018.

He  was   responsible  for    increasing  diversity  and  hiring  over  35  police  officers  since  2017.  Under  his  leadership,  BHPD  became  better  connected  to  the  community  with  programming  such  as:  Geographical  Policing, the Citizen ’s Police Academy and the Chief’s Advisory Panel.
