Jan 11th 2022: The City of Costa Mesa has renamed Civic Center Park in honor of the cities second Police Chief Roger Neth who hasd the longest tenure as a chief at 22 years. Rodger Neth was also one of the cities first three sworn police officers. The Civic Center park as you might guest is next to the Costa Mesa Police Department Headquarters by the Civic Center.
Below is the video courtesy of the City Of Costa Mesa of the recent dedication ceremony to the former police chief. I have no issue with the renaming of the park but it seams often these events are just photo ops for politician’s.
