After 35 years of service, Chief David Bejarano of the Chula Vista Police Department retired. The retirement party or traditional “walkout” was a celebration of Chief Bejarano’s accomplishments and an opportunity to thank him for his dedication to selflessly protecting others. Joined by family, friends, fellow Law Enforcement, and grateful community members, he was deeply honored during the festivities. Police Chiefs and law enforcement officers from all branches and from all over the state were in attendance and culminated with bagpipes, a firetruck ladder and flag, and a San Diego Police Department Helicopter flyby!
