Kevin Brooks is a board member of the Menifee Police Officers Association. He has been involved in the MPOA since its inception in May 2020. Kevin is happily married, the proud father of six adult kids and the proud grandfather of nine grandkids. He spent 20 years in the United States Marine Corps, where some of his duties included being a drill instructor, small arms weapons instructor, hand-to-hand combat instructor, and platoon sergeant for a reconnaissance and sniper platoon. He also served as security for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of Defense.
After retiring from the Marines, he began his law enforcement career over 23 years ago with the San Diego Police Department in July 1999. While with SDPD, he patrolled the Southeastern division of the city, and during that time he was trained as a Critical Response Team member (CRT) and a psychological emergency response team member (PERT).
Kevin spent approximately 6½ years with the San Diego Police Department before lateraling to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department in February 2006. During his employment, he was assigned to the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station, Cabazon Sheriff’s Station and Ben Clark Training Center. His assignments included patrol, being a canine handler for approximately 10 years and working in a Community Service Unit handling community-oriented events (e.g., lectures/training at schools and businesses, police Explorer program, community engagement events).
In May 2020, Kevin made the move to join the newly formed Menifee Police Department. He was selected as one of two to start the Menifee Police K-9 Unit. After completing police canine training with his partner, K-9 Dino, they were assigned to protect and serve the citizens of Menifee.
Kevin has multiple collateral duties within the Menifee Police Department. He is a police Explorer advisor, rangemaster, less-lethal instructor, use-of-force instructor and member of the Department’s Honor Guard unit.
