Cid to Step Over to Glendale Police – Sims Appointed as Interim CCPD Chief

While items discussed at closed session by the Culver City Council don’t often result in announcements, the meeting on Dec. 21, 2022 was an exception. Chief of Police Manuel Cid will be leaving to take on the position of Police Chief at the City of Glendale. Cid has been with the Culver City Police for more than 20 years, and his last two years as the head of the department, succeeding Chief Scott Bixby in 2020. 

“It’s been my whole adult life, working here, and this place means a lot to me,” Cid mentioned in a conversation on Wednesday, Dec. 21. “I’ve seen a lot of change at the department, and I’m proud of where we are right now.” But the offer from the City of Glendale was one he felt good about taking on. 

Chief Jason Sims has been appointed as the Interim Chief of Police, and will begin as department head on Jan. 16, 2023.
