San Mateo Welcomes Chief of Police Ed Barberini


Ed Barberini, a 25-year Law Enforcement veteran, was sworn in as San Mateo’s new Chief of Police in February.

In a nice nod to tradition and family, Chief Barberini’s father, also named Ed, administered the oath of office to his son.

Barberini has more than 25 years of law enforcement experience, including Chief positions in San Bruno and Millbrae. The bulk of his career has been spent with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s office, gaining experience in administration, transportation, corrections, field operations, court security and bomb squad work. He also gained important experience directing the County Office of Emergency Services and Homeland Security.

As Chief, Barberini will manage 170 staff, including 115 sworn officers, and a $47 million annual budget.

“I am extremely excited to join this team and help carry on the excellent work being done, not only within the police department, but throughout the City,” Barberini said in a City news release.

We here at Teri Black & Company are proud to have managed the nationwide recruitment, and wish Chief Barberini the very best in his tenure!
