The City of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton Police Department recently announced the addition of lateral Officer Kevin McKendry.

While donning face coverings, McKendry was sworn in by Interim Police Chief Craig Eicher on April 14. Officer McKendry was born and raised in Lomita, California, and graduated from West Torrance High School. He is a former member of the U.S. Coast Guard, an Army reserve and has 17 years of experience in law enforcement. He was an officer at the San Francisco Police Department and, most recently, Ross Police Department.

While off-duty, McKendry enjoys CrossFit, camping and hiking with his family.

“I am really excited to work here and learn the Pleasanton way of doing things,” he said.
