History[edit]

The Culver City Police Department was founded on November 21, 1917, when the City Trustees provided for the employment of a City Marshal in their 5th resolution. As a result, Frank W. Bradley started work on November 21, 1917. The department did not function as a full-service police department, using the County Jail for prisoners, and having only temporary police officers. Walter Shaw was appointed the first municipal Chief of Police in 1926.[3]

Since the department was formed in 1917, it has had two officers killed in the line of duty, both by traffic accidents.[4] One of the officers from the Rodney King incident, former LAPD officer Timothy Wind was subsequently employed between 1994-2000 as one of its community relations officers, before leaving California in 2000 for Indiana.[5]
