New commander of Lakewood Sheriff Station is a familiar face

David Sprengel, a 29-year member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department with several tours of duty at the Lakewood Station, has been promoted to captain and named the new commander of the station.

Sprengel is commanding over 200 uniformed and civilian personnel at the station who serve Lakewood and the cities of Artesia, Bellflower, Hawaiian Gardens and Paramount.

Sprengel is familiar to many residents and community leaders in Lakewood. He served at the station as a sergeant, lieutenant, and most recently as the acting commander of the station for several months. During his previous years at the Lakewood Station he helped to create the volunteer clergy team which assists station personnel and serves in the community.

In his free time, Sprengel enjoys running, hiking and golf, and he has previously coached Little League and Pony League baseball and youth soccer. He’s married with four adult children.

“Lakewood is a great community,” said Sprengel, “and Lakewood Station is home to some of the best deputies, civilian personnel and volunteers in the county. I look forward to working in partnership with local residents and our station personnel to keep crime low and provide the best possible service to the community.”

“I’m very pleased that Captain Sprengel will be leading our Sheriff’s Station,” said Mayor Todd Rogers, “and if Lakewood residents see him at a public event, I hope they will take a moment to wish him the very best.”
