Captain I Daryl Marquete Russell was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1958.  He and his younger brother, Clarence Russell, and younger sisters, Caryl and Leslie Russell, were raised by their mother, Dennis Ruth Russell, and late great-grandmother, Mandy Martin, in Monrovia, California.

As a young boy during the 1960’s, he visited his late grandfather, Dennis Rollins, who was a Chicago police officer.  The visit turned out to be the genesis for his interest in a future law enforcement career.  Captain Russell attended Monrovia High School, and as a teenager joined the Monrovia Police Department Explorer Post.  After high school, he attended Citrus College in Covina, California, and Los Angeles City College, where he majored in the Administration of Justice and obtained an Associates of Arts degree.

Captain Russell’s career began with the Los Angeles Police Department in July 1977, when he was selected as a Police Student Worker (PSW).  As a PSW, he was assigned to Newton, Central, Hollywood, and Northeast Areas.  He became a Recruit Officer in February 1980, and successfully passed all phases of training at the historic Elysian Park Police Academy.  Upon graduation from the police academy, Captain Russell worked patrol at Southeast, Communications, Hollenbeck, 77th Street, and Northeast Patrol Divisions, where he gained the reputation of a dedicated, loyal, proactive officer, who epitomized the Department’s Core Values of “Respect for People and Service to Our Communities.”  His assignments as a police officer also included specialized details at Operations-Central Bureau, where he worked a crime task force during the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, Detective Support Division Gangs, and Northeast Area Vice.

He was promoted to Sergeant in 1993, where he supervised officers of Central Traffic Division and Foothill Patrol Division.  As a sergeant, he was assigned to a myriad of coveted positions and specialized units such as the Patrol Adjutant at Foothill Area, Officer in Charge (OIC) of the Foothill Area Bicycle Detail, Complaint Investigator at Internal Affairs Group, Surveillance Agent at Special Operations Section, and Special Events Coordinator at Operations-Central Bureau, where he facilitated the Spanish Community Police Academy, and Community Police Academy for Adults and Young Adults.  In addition, he coordinated events from small parades to large scale events such as the Grammy Awards, Fiesta Broadway, United States Figure Skating Championships, City of Los Angeles Marathon, and events associated with the Los Angeles Lakers’ National Basketball Association championships.

Captain Russell was promoted to Lieutenant in 2005 and was assigned to Northeast Area as a Watch Commander.  During the assignment, he was designated as the Patrol Crime Czar, and the Area’s Liaison Officer with the Los Angeles Dodgers.  His lieutenant experience included an assignment to Internal Affairs Administrative Investigation Division as an OIC.

In March 2009, he was promoted to Captain and assigned to his first command at Central Patrol Division.  Captain Russell holds the distinction of being the first African American to be promoted to Police Captain by the Los Angeles Police Department, during the historic administration of President Barack H. Obama.
