CLOVIS, CA—Clovis Police Department Detectives have arrested 26-year-old Clovis resident Mitchell Singh on multiple sex crime charges. Singh was formerly employed by the Clovis Police Department as a Community Service Officer, a non-sworn civilian position. He was released from probationary employment with the City in July.

The allegations state that the first act of sexual misconduct occurred in 2017, and allege over 30 unlawful acts. All alleged acts of sexual misconduct occurred while Singh was off-duty and not acting in his capacity as a City employee.

This morning, just after 11 o’clock, detectives arrested Singh outside of his home in Clovis. He was arrested on the following sexual misconduct related charges: 

PC 288(a)-lewd and lascivious acts to a child 

PC 288.5(a)-continual sexual acts to a child under the age of 14

Mr. Singh was questioned by detectives at the Clovis Police Department. He will be booked into the Fresno County Jail on the above charges. A booking photo is attached. This investigation is ongoing.
