The Culver City Police Department is noting a change of leadership; Chief Scott Bixby is on medical leave, and Captain Manny Cid is stepping up as Acting Chief.
Last Wednesday, June 10, 2020, Bixby notified his department that he was taking a medical leave of absence, and named Cid to the position of acting chief.
Cid was hired by the Culver City Police Department in 2005 and attended the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Academy. Upon completion of the police academy, Captain Cid spent a few years working patrol before being assigned to the Investigations Bureau, where he became a member of the Crime Impact Team and later represented the Police Department at the Cal-MMET major narcotics taskforce.
In 2012, Captain Cid was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. As a Sergeant, Captain Cid had the opportunity to supervise the Gang Intelligence Unit, K-9 program, and the Field Training Program, before being assigned to command Group 1 of the LA IMPACT major narcotics taskforce, responsible for investigating large scale narcotics trafficking and money laundering organizations.
In 2016, Captain Cid was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. As a Lieutenant, Captain Cid served as a Watch Commander in Patrol and later the Administrative Lieutenant working out of the Office of the Chief of Police.
Captain Cid was promoted to the rank of Captain in 2019, where he has been in charge of the Operations Bureau.
Captain Cid possesses his Bachelors in Political Science and a Masters Degree in Public Administration and Organizational Leadership. He is also a graduate of the Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute, the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Point Leadership Program, as well as the FBI’s National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
Captain Cid has been the recipient of several department awards, including the Sustained Superiority Award, the Distinguished Service Medal, and the “David Shaby” Career Achievement Award.
