The city of Santa Clarita invites the public to meet Paul Becker, the new Sheriff's Captain at an open house event on Thursday, August 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the first floor of the Century Room at City Hall, 23920 Valencia Boulevard, 91355.

"The city is very excited to introduce our new captain to the community, and we encourage everyone to attend the open house and share your thoughts and ideas about law enforcement in Santa Clarita," Mayor Laurene Weste said.
