Watch: Shining a Spotlight on Staff – I am Cal OES Video Series – Anthony Lukin


Over the past several years, the state has experienced an unprecedented number of emergencies and disasters. As these climate-driven natural disasters become more severe in California, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) staff has met each new challenge head-on.

The nearly 2,000 staff at Cal OES have responded to increasingly complex disasters in fresh and innovative ways, strengthening the foundation of emergency management to prepare for, respond to and recover from all types of emergencies and disasters.

This week, Cal OES welcomes you to learn more about Anthony Lukin, Chief of Criminal Justice and Homeland Security Training with the California Specialized Training institute (CSTI) at Cal OES. A law enforcement veteran and former consultant, he facilitates counterterrorism, human trafficking, and officer safety training programs based out of San Luis Obispo.

“We are dedicated to saving people’s lives,” Lukin said. “We frequently hear from officers that the training they received saved them in the field.”

He is passionate about thorough peace officer standards trainings through his 24 years with Cal OES.
