Detective Dave Cabrera, a 12-year veteran of the Fountain Valley Police Department has chosen to lateral to another department. Dave was born and raised here in Fountain Valley which makes this move even more difficult. Dave was working as one of our property crime detectives and takes with him a vast amount of experience. Dave has solved countless cases within the city and has never missed a call out. Before becoming a Detective, Dave was a great street cop who in 2007 won the Orange County Recovery Officer of the Year which is awarded to Officers who have recovered the most stolen vehicles. In 2008 Dave received an award from the Alzheimer’s Association for giving aid to a woman with Alzheimer's in the city. Dave has always loved what he does and enjoys giving back to the community. We wish Dave the best of luck in his new endeavors. He will be sorely missed.
