The Torrance Police Department is home to many lateral officers from other police departments. In order to help you understand why a police officer would leave one police agency for another we offer the following personal testimonials.
Family priorities led to my transferring from the San Diego Police Department, where I had worked for five years, to the Torrance Police Department. This was a difficult decision since I was happy with the department and had the opportunity to work a variety of assignments.
My goal was to find an equally reputable department where I could continue my efforts in a job that I thoroughly enjoyed. The Torrance Police Department was the agency that met my requirements of reputation, compensation, career opportunities, and overall quality.
The Torrance Police department is a professional and progressive organization that is large enough to offer variety and opportunity, and small enough to provide a personal atmosphere and sense of community. I have had no regrets with my decision, and I have experienced an improvement to my quality of life, both personally and professionally.
