Barstow chooses Ramirez, Ross to head police, fire department

Staff Writer

BARSTOW • City Council unanimously approved Monday night the recommendations of Albert Ramirez as Barstow police chief and Rich Ross as Barstow fire chief, according to a press release.

Each had served as interim chiefs after their respective predecessors retired.

“Both Chief Ramirez and Chief Ross will continue to lead, serve, and protect their community as they have done for so many years,” Mayor Pro-Tem Julie Hackbarth-McIntyre stated.

Police Chief Ramirez began his career in law enforcement with the Barstow Police Department on Jan. 7, 1991, and has worked his way through the ranks ever since.

In June, Ramirez took over for Dianne Burns, who was the first woman to head a police department in San Bernardino County history.

Fire Chief Ross is a Barstow native and began his service with the Fire District as a paid call firefighter in 1987.

Ross filled Darrell Jauss’ role April 1 after the former fire chief retired.

Applicants had to face several interview panels and testing during the qualifying process. The applicant deadline was Aug. 31.

“We look forward to their continued dedication in helping to keep our city and its residents safe,” Hackbarth-McIntyre said.
