The Canyon Lake POA announced the appointment of Ken Toler as the new Community Patrol manager, effective June 3.

Other responsibilities and duties include overseeing Hearing Services (citations) and acting as a staff liaison to the Appeals Committee, the Security Advisory Committee, and between the community and local law enforcement agencies.

Toler has more than 25 years of experience in security and safety management. In his most recent role as manager of the Department of Public Safety at Cahuilla Casino Hotel, Toler spearheaded the creation of a comprehensive safety program. He oversaw Job Safety Analysis training and ensured ongoing adherence to safety protocols.

As chair of the Safety Committee, Toler conducted orientations for new hires on hazardous communications, evacuations, and workplace violence. His duties also included managing daily safety operations, incident reporting, and serving as the main contact for law enforcement, emergency services, and fire departments.

Previously, as the director of security at Soboba Casino, Toler managed security operations for high-profile events and public safety programs for more than 10 years. He led a team of 75 employees, ensuring 24/7 security and public safety operations. Toler was responsible for the security and emergency operations at a 10,000-seat outdoor arena, a venue that hosted large events.

Toler and his staff oversaw surge traffic management and implementation of crowd controls at these significant community events. His responsibilities encompassed close coordination with the tribal council and law enforcement, along with execution and oversight of additional outside event security contracts.

Toler’s experience extends beyond operational management to include developing and delivering training programs and seminars, notably with the National Indian Casino Safety and Security Association, where he shared best practices and improved safety standards within the Indian Gaming industry.
