Greg Ienni: 

I have 16+ years of police officer experience. I am a lateral from Pomona PD in Los Angeles County. My interests are motorcycle riding (on/off road), RV camping, many outdoor sports. I’ve played baseball at the collegiate level and professionally. My favorite professional sports teams are the San Diego Padres and the LA Rams. I am married (22+ years) with three children. During my career, I have been a SWAT operator, CNT member, Motor Officer and Motor Instructor, Drivers Training Instructor, Peer Support member, POA board member, and a Recruit officer.  I chose MVPD for the positive working environment and a community that supports their first responders.


Christine Powell:

I have been with Mtn. View PD for 3 years, and 13 years with a previous agency.  I am currently a Detective with our Crimes Against Person Unit, and am also an FTO, CNT member, Explorer Advisor and Peer Support Team member. MVPD and the City of Mountain View value their employees.  One thing I appreciate the most about MVPD is that it supports employees developing their interests and expertise.  MVPD encourages employees to seek training courses that interest them and the department will often send us to these courses.  It’s a great way for us to stay engaged and continue to grow! 

Eric Nelson:

Overall, I have 21 years of law enforcement experience, with the last seven (7) years being here at MVPD. I am currently assigned to the traffic team.  Other collateral duties are firearms instructor, Crisis Negotiations Team, FTO, POA President.

I came to Mountain View because I had always been interested in the Bay Area.  I knew a couple officers that worked here.  The lifetime medical and sleeping quarters were a huge factor.
