SAN DIEGO — Newly-appointed Port of San Diego Vice President of Public Safety/Chief of the San Diego Harbor Police Department Mark Stainbrook administered the oath of office to 11 freshly-promoted officers on March 16, including Assistant Chief Kirk Nichols and 10 others ranging from corporal to captain. The oath of office followed Stainbrook’s own swearing in by his predecessor as chief, Col. John Bolduc (pictured). Bolduc is now superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol.
The oaths of office were administered during a Change of Command ceremony at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier on San Diego’s Embarcadero.
Stainbrook had previously served as the port district’s vice president of public safety; he joined the Harbor Police as assistant chief six years ago, after retiring from the Los Angeles Police Department as a lieutenant.
