MISSION — Assistant Police Chief Martin Garza said this week that he is ready to serve the City of Mission; Garza will be serving as the interim police chief until someone is put in the position permanently.
“I feel privileged and blessed, but more than anything, I’m humbled,” said Garza about the opportunity, adding that he is happy to continue running the Mission Police Department and assist the city through the transition of final appointment of a new police chief. “I’m ready to serve.”
Garza, a Mission native, has been with the MPD for nearly 20 years. He began as a patrolman in 1992.
