The City of Signal Hill and the Signal Hill Police Department announce the retirement of Police Chief Christopher M. Nunley. Captain Brian Leyn will serve as Acting Police Chief until an interim Chief is named. 

“On behalf of the entire City Council, I want to extend my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Chief Nunley for his decades of dedicated service to the Signal Hill community. Chief Nunley began his career in Signal Hill as a 14-year-old volunteer Explorer and steadily progressed through the ranks and served as Chief for the last five years. He has been an integral part of the Police Department’s growth and evolution over the years, a champion of public safety and an ambassador to the community. I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with him! We all wish him and his family well and all the best in his retirement,” said Signal Hill Mayor Edward H.J. Wilson.

Chief Nunley has directed and overseen several important projects for the Signal Hill Police Department, including the construction and move to a new police facility, the implementation of body worn cameras, the replacement of the Department’s Computer Aided Dispatch Software, and the implementation of a special Homeless Liaison Officer. 

“It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as your police chief. I am proud to have been a member of this department, and for all that it has offered to me and my family. I will especially miss the people, and their commitment to public service that is so obviously on display,” said Chief Nunley.
