Keeping our families safe is Mike Barbanica’s top priority.

Mike, a retired Pittsburg Police Lieutenant, knows the meaning of hard work, rising from a cadet level all the way to the Lieutenant rank. His personally-run street-level Narcotic and Crime Unit slashed crime in the city by 23%. As a detective he cracked down on sexual assault and crimes against women and children, and ran the Pittsburg’s Police Department traffic unit, investigating fatal crashes, advocating for safety for all families on the road.

During his work with the K-9 Unit, Mike worked with trained police dogs to keep city streets safe. After the horrifying events of 9/11, Mike had the honor of leading Pittsburg’s Emergency Operations Center, working directly with the FBI in order to protect all families in our community.

Mike bravely risked his life in order to take down and arrest an active shooter at a local Raley’s grocery store, earning the Bronze Medal of Valor Award for such a courageous act. Mike served as a police officer for 21 years in his community before retiring in 2007.
