Ex-San Diego Police Chief Gets Chula Vista Post

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Former San Diego Police Chief David Bejarano will take over the same job in Chula Vista.

The City Council approved Bejarano as police chief at its meeting Tuesday night. He's expected to make a formal announcement Wednesday afternoon.

He'll replace former Chief Rick Emerson, who retired in May.

Bejarano, who's 52, was San Diego's first Hispanic police chief. He served from 1999 to 2003 and later was a U.S. marshal for San Diego and Imperial counties.

He's a longtime resident of Chula Vista, a San Diego suburb with about 228,000 residents.

Bejarano had been a candidate for San Diego County sheriff but he has suspended that campaign and says he'll return any remaining contributions.
