Lt. John Munsey was appointed the new coastside lieutenant starting in January, the city of Half Moon Bay and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office announced yesterday.
Munsey has been with the Sheriff’s Office since 1994 and served as the commander of the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force.
Munsey was raised in Half Moon Bay until he was 12 and attended coastside grade schools. He has a bachelor’s degree in psychology as well as a master’s in public administration.
Munsey will be replacing Lt. Lisa Williams, who is moving to the Correctional Division. Williams has served as the coastside lieutenant since 2010, during which she successfully administered the absorption of Half Moon Bay’s law enforcement services into the Sheriff’s Office.
