New Police Chief Carlos Garcia, a Short Bio

January 24th, 2023 by

Carlos GarciaCarlos was raised in New York City where he graduated from high school. After graduation, Garcia enlisted in the US Army where he diligently worked his way up the infantry ranks, traveling to many different countries while learning important leadership, and lifeskills from his experiences and superiors.

In the late 1990’s, Carlos was stationed in Fort Campbell, KY, and assigned as a unit trainer for the National Guard unit in Warren. It was during this time that he began to pursue his interest in Law Enforcement by first joining the Drew County Auxiliary and eventually working as a part-time deputy for Drew County. It was also during this time that he met his future wife, Denise, a Monticello native.

After serving his country for more than 23 years, Carlos decided to retire as a 1st SGT. in
2003. Upon retiring, Carlos and his wife wanted a permanent home to raise their family. They chose Monticello. Carlos was hired by the Monticello Police Department also in 2003. In the years that he has been with the department, he has once again diligently worked his way up the ranks to Sgt, Lt, Captain, Assistant Chief and now Chief of Police.

He and his wife have been married for 24 years and have two children, one currently in Graduate School pursuing a Master’s Degree and the other a sophomore pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree.
