First African American Police Chief for the City of Antioch

Black History Month

is a time to celebrate the achievements of African Americans, and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. President has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. We are lucky to have the first African American Chief for the City of Antioch.

Chief Brooks - City of Antioch Chief of Police

Chief Brooks was sworn in at Antioch PD on Dec 11, 1995, after graduating the 128th Police Academy at Los Medanos College. He immediately set his goals high and always knew he wanted to be Chief in the City of Antioch. Since then, he has continually worked hard to achieve his goals and worked his way through the ranks all while attending college during evenings and weekends.
