Captain Michael Oreb was born and raised in San Pedro, California, graduating from San Pedro High School in 1982.  He comes from a long line of Los Angeles Police Officers:  His great-grandfather (John G. Magness) was killed in the line of duty in 1920 while working University Division (now known as Southwest Area); his great-uncle (Zack P. Magness) retired from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) as a Captain of Detectives; and two other uncles retired in the late 1960s after lengthy and successful LAPD careers.

After completing LAPD Academy training in September 1986, Captain Oreb was assigned as a probationary officer at Southeast Patrol.  Upon completing his probationary period, he was assigned to Central Traffic Division where he worked as an Accident Investigator.  In 1990, he transferred to Newton Patrol where he promoted to Police Officer III, Field Training Officer.  From there, he went to Central Patrol where he was assigned as a Field Training Officer for the subsequent five years.  In 1996, he promoted to Sergeant and worked as a Patrol Field Supervisor at both Southeast and Newton Areas.  While working as a Patrol Supervisor at Newton Area, he was loaned to Newton Area Vice.  That assignment led him to promote to Sergeant II as the Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of Hollenbeck Area Vice.  After a year and a half at Hollenbeck Area Vice, Captain Oreb transferred to Internal Affairs where he worked as an investigator until he promoted to Lieutenant in 2006.

After his promotion to Lieutenant, he was assigned to Hollywood Area as a Patrol Watch Commander.  In March 2008, Captain Oreb took over as the OIC of the Hollywood Area Gang Impact Team (GIT).  For the next three years, under his leadership, Hollywood Area achieved a 73% reduction in gang-related crime.  Thereafter, Captain Oreb and Hollywood GIT were awarded the Department’s Meritorious Unit Citation.  From there, he was assigned as the Commanding Officer of Hollywood Detectives.  In January 2012, he was promoted to Captain of Central Patrol Division.

In 2005, Captain Oreb earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Occupational Studies from California State University, Long Beach (CSULB).  He is a graduate of the LAPD West Point Leadership and earned a Master’s Degree in Emergency Services from CSULB in 2008.  He is currently a member of the Police Officers’ Association of Los Angeles County (POALAC).

Captain Oreb is married to Linda, his wife of ten years; they have twin boys.
