#LASD Pico Rivera Sheriff's Station Announces New Captian Promotion

Phillip R. Marquez Promoted to Captain

One of the Department’s newest Captains, Phillip R. Marquez, was selected by Sheriff Alex Villanueva to lead the Pico Rivera Station after successfully completing the restructured Captain promotion process, which includes a panel interview with city, county and other local officials.  

Marquez has served Los Angeles County since 1991 when he started as a deputy at North County Correctional Facility.  He worked in multiple custody facilities for several years before transferring to patrol at Century Station.  He also worked Community Oriented Policing (COPS) Bureau.

As a sergeant at Lakewood Station, Marquez was in charge of a special assignment team and was an acting service area lieutenant for the city of Paramount.  When he promoted to the rank of lieutenant and transferred to Temple station, he served in many capacities.  His contributions as a lieutenant also include being a service area lieutenant at Walnut Station, Detective Bureau lieutenant at Altadena Station, Operations lieutenant at both Walnut and Industry Stations, as well as an Executive Aide for Countywide Services Division. 

Marquez has contributed countless hours to the communities he’s served, both on and off duty.  From 2001 to 2004, he was part of a federal task force related to the Compton Violent Intercity Initiative.  He is also actively involved with the GAP Food Bank in the city of Ontario, which helps feed approximately 450 families weekly, and has received several awards from the city for his contributions to the organization.   
Currently, Marquez is finishing his Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and World Religion.  He has been married to his wife, Vicky, for over 25 years and they have two adult children; Anthony, 25, and Jocelyn, 22.  When he is off duty, he enjoys watching and participating in sports as well as boating on the Colorado river.  

Marquez will take the helm of Pico Rivera Station, which has a very close and supportive relationship with the city of Pico Rivera.  The city is located on the southern end of the San Gabriel Valley and is home to approximately 63,000 residents in a 9-mile patrol area.  It also covers a portion of unincorporated Whittier.  The station and the city government partner to provide many programs  to residents, including the Gang Crime Suppression Program, Citizen Academy/Ride Along Program and the PRIDE Program (Pico Rivera Individual Development & Ethics), a youth intervention program.
