Doug Drummond, a former two-term Long Beach City Councilman, Vice Mayor and Police Department Commander, was appointed in August 2011 by Mayor Bob Foster to serve on the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners, the five-member governing body for the Port of Long Beach, California. His Board colleagues voted him President in December 2013.
Doug's more than 45 years of service to Long Beach began in 1959 when he became a Long Beach Police Department officer, attaining the ranks of Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain, and then retiring in 1988 as Commander after 29 years on the force.
His Third District constituents elected him to the Long Beach City Council in 1990, and Doug served two four-year terms on the Council, two of those years as Vice Mayor.
Doug has also been a member of the City of Long Beach Civil Service Commission, the Board of Directors of the Long Beach Transportation Company, California State Commissioner for the Board of Parole Hearings, and Fish & Game Commissioner for Los Angeles County.
He served in the U. S. Army as a paratrooper in Germany and was discharged as a sergeant. He holds a bachelor's degree from California State University Long Beach in Political Science and Public Administration, a master's degree in Public Administration from the University of Southern California, a doctorate in Criminology from August Vollmer University, and is a part-time faculty member at all three schools. He also graduated from the FBI National Academy in 1974 and is a published author.
