Lieutenant Eric Little joined our department in 2004 as a cadet. He became a police recruit in 2006 and graduated from the Police Academy later that year. He was promoted to the rank of sergeant in 2014 and attained his current rank of lieutenant in May 2020. With his promotion, he was assigned as the Area 4 commander.
Area 4 includes Corona del Mar, Newport Coast, Spyglass Hill, and the Harbor View Homes. It is the largest of our four areas with the lowest density of residents and visitors. With so much of this area being residential, community members are focused on the safety of their streets and neighborhoods.
