David Bertini, a CSM alumnus, has become Menlo Park’s new chief of police. The appointment became official on July 8, 2018, the Almanac News reported.

A true CSM success story, David received his bachelor’s degree from St. Mary’s University, then went on to earn a master’s degree in military history from Norwich University in Vermont.

David had been interim chief for the past six months before accepting the permanent position.

And, David is not only a graduate of CSM, but a teacher as well. Chief Bertini plans to keep teaching at CSM.
