Former Greenfield Police Officer sentenced after embezzling thousands from POA

A former Greenfield Police Officer has been sentenced to three years of felony probation and 90 days of jail after embezzling thousands of dollars from the Greenfield Police Officers’ Association.

45-year-old Arnulfo Trevino, a resident of Gonzales and former officer of the Greenfield Police Department, has been placed on a grant of probation for felonious embezzlement that occurred during his tenure as President of the Greenfield Police Officers’ Association.

Trevino was the President of The Greenfield Police Officers’ Association between August of 2013 and October of 2017. During that time, Trevino was solely responsible for managing the Association’s financial accounts and for paying all the Association’s bills. In October of 2017, other officers learned that the Association’s account with the Police Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) was past due and that, consequently, they were not entitled to legal representation and other member benefits.

When confronted by other Greenfield officers, Trevino admitted that he had been financially struggling and had used the Association’s money for his own purposes. A full investigation of his conduct revealed that he had embezzled $31,318.70 from the Association over the course of the 4 years he acted as President.

Trevino was sentenced to 3 years of felony probation and 90 days of jail. At the time of sentencing, Trevino provided proof to the court that he had made full restitution to the Association.
