Santa Paula Police Officer Charged Auto Insurance Fraud

During the first week of April 2018, the Santa Paula Police Department was notified by the Ventura County District Attorney that Matt Alonzo, a 10-year veteran of the Santa Paula Police, was under investigation for insurance fraud. Mr. Alonzo was immediately placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation.

On Monday, December 17, 2018 , Mr. Alonzo was arrested for insurance fraud. Mr. Alonzo is presumed innocent and the Department will reserve judgment until such time as the judicial proceedings are concluded.

“We hold our officers to the highest standard of professionalism on and off duty and this case will be diligently investigated per our policies,” said City Manager Michael Rock. “This allegation should not diminish the hard work that the men and women of the Santa Paula Police Department do every day to serve our community.”
