Corporal Travis Aspegren has retired from the Vallejo Police Department! We wish him well in the next chapter of life and thank him for his years of dedicated service to the City of Vallejo. Travis came to us in 2014 with years of prior experience from other agencies. He continued to hone his skills and training to become a member of the SWAT Team, Recruiting Team and an instructor in many de-escalation and force option disciplines. He was promoted to Corporal in 2018 and named Officer of the Year in 2019. He is a decorated veteran of the VPD and leaves a big hole of experience to fill. Thanks again Travis and enjoy retirement.
This drops the VPD back down to 88 officers and over 40 short of budgeted strength.
