New deputy San Mateo County manager named

Longtime San Mateo Deputy Police Chief John Callagy has been appointed as the new deputy county manager for San Mateo County.

Callagy will retire from the Police Department after a 29-year career. His last day will be Nov. 11.

At the department, Callagy has served as a supervisor, manager and detective, among other capacities. He has been deputy chief for seven years.

In his retirement announcement, Callagy thanked his fellow police officers, stating that he is proud to have worked side by side with them.

“I will always cherish the collaborations, partnerships and relationships that we have formed in an effort to make a difference for the community members that have put their trust in us to do the right thing,” he said.

County Manager John Maltbie said Callagy will focus on public safety in his new post, working with the Sheriff’s Office, district attorney, probation and other departments. Callagy’s duties will also include overseeing emergency communications and the construction of a new emergency communications and operations center.

Callagy received his master’s degree from Notre Dame de Namur University and a juris doctorate degree from Santa Clara University while working as a police officer.Bay Area NewsPeninsula
