Rita Gilmer has served as a Records Clerk for the Porterville Police Department for over 34 years. Rita has served the City and the Department proudly during that time.

Rita graduated from the College of Sequoias in 1978 with an Associates of Science Degree in Business Management.  Shortly after graduation, Rita began her career at the Porterville Police Department as a part-time Records Clerk.  Rita continued her part-time employment until she was given a full-time position on June 24, 1980.  Rita has spent her entire career solely with the City of Porterville’s Police Department.

During her time at the Department, Rita has become an expert in every facet of the Records Division. She was instrumental in helping the Department transition to an automated Records Management System in 1998.  She has been instrumental in helping mentor and train personnel who were hired after her.

Rita has long been a backbone in the daily operations of the Records Division. Her current assignment has her working concurrently with the local District Attorney’s Office, ensuring that all criminal reports are completed in a timely manner for review and prosecution.

In her off time, Rita enjoys spending time with friends and family, camping at the coast, or being active in her church. She has been married to her husband, David Gilmer, for 17 years and they have one daughter, Erica, who is 13 years old.

Rita is scheduled to begin her vacation August 2013, which will continue to her anticipated official retirement date in November 2013. Rita claims to have no current plans for her retirement, other than being a full-time parent.
