LAPD Commanding Officer Sandy Jo MacArthur Promotes to Deputy Chief

Los Angeles:  City officials joined family, friends and coworkers in a promotional ceremony today for Sandy Jo MacArthur of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) as she was officially promoted from Commander, Commanding Officer of Training Group to Deputy Chief of Incident Management and Training. Guests at the Elysian Park ceremony included Third District Los Angeles City Councilmember Dennis Zine, Los Angeles Police Commissioners Andrea Ordin and Robert M. Saltzman, and LAPD Chief William Bratton.

MacArthur was appointed to the Department in February 1980. She has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and a master’s degree in behavioral science, negotiations and conflict management. She spent ten years in patrol assignments before promoting to sergeant in 1990.  During her patrol tours she worked a variety of LAPD divisions, including Van Nuys, 77th, Foothill and Southwest. Her assignments included patrol, vice and narcotics. In 1993 she left patrol to become the Officer in Charge of the Human Relations Unit at Training Division and in  1998 was assigned to the Ombuds Office as an Assistant Ombuds Officer and Mediator. She promoted to lieutenant in 2001 and worked several assignments, including watch commander and as the adjutant to the Chief of Police. She also worked in the Public Information Office and Training Division.

MacArthur was promoted to captain in April 2005. After briefly working directly for Chief William Bratton, she was assigned as the Commanding Officer of Civil Rights Integrity Division. In December 2006 she was promoted to the rank of Commander and assigned as the Commanding Officer of Training Group.

In the Department’s Training Division, MacArthur developed expertise in the areas of domestic violence, discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, diversity, hate crimes, use of force and conflict management. She is also a recognized professional in training development and delivery, having served on many California Peace Officer Standards and Training committees to develop statewide standards for training law enforcement personnel. In addition, she conducts workshops for the Department and in the community on the topics of leadership, domestic violence, discrimination, and retaliation.

MacArthur has been married to LAPD Lieutenant Nick MacArthur for 23 years, and they have two adult children, Cody and Hayley Jo.
