Chaldeans Hopeful About New El Cajon Police Chief
By David Najor :: Friday, April 25, 2008 :: 19657 Views :: Article Rating :: Law & Order, Business & Finance

California, USA – Less than a week after his swearing in ceremony, El Cajon, California’s new police chief, Pat Sprecco,  has been the talk of the town in the Chaldean business community.   Chief Sprecco replaces Cliff Diamond, who retired Friday and was a strong supporter of business safety and crime prevention. 

"My goal of course would be to address crime issues in El Cajon, to make it a safe and as pleasant a community for folks to live in," Sprecco said.

Chaldean business owners are eager to hear from the new police chief and learn about any new initiatives in preventing and protecting small business owners in the city.  “We know Captain Sprecco, well now chief,  is experienced, highly qualified, and respectful of small business owners.  We look forward to his support and leadership,” said Kalla, who’s family owns Bay Liquor in El Cajon.

Sprecco worked his way through the ranks of law enforcement in El Cajon.  He began as a volunteer cadet in his mid teens, a stint at Grossmont College as a campus security officer for a few year, and a few years later he was hired on as a rookie officer for the El Cajon police.  Public service surges through Sprecco’s veins.  Both Sprecco’s parents were reserve police officers, His father was a reserve El Cajon police officer, and his mother was a reserve sheriff's deputy. His brother, son, son-in-law, and several cousins all work in law enforcement.

Chaldean business owners have long faced challenges of crime in the city.  Many hope Sprecco can bring a brighter focus to the issues and a stronger relationship with the small business community.  The business community along with El Cajon residents remain concerned about the growth of gang activity, broken homes, and school violence that spills out into the community say business leaders.
