San Jose City Deputy Chief Phan Ngo, 50, has been selected to be the new chief of Sunnyvale, a Bay Area city of about 150,000 people. A police veteran for 27 years, he is the first Vietnamese-American to be head of any police department in California. Phan Ngo is married with 2 children and came to the US when he was 8 years old. A familiar face of the Vietnamese-American community in San Jose, he is well liked. A year ago, there was talk of a movement by the community to ask Mayor Sam Liccardo to appoint him the next SJPD chief.
