Truckee has picked a new police chief to replace retiring Scott Berry.

Nicholas Sensley will begin as the new chief in early November with 20 years of police experience, according to a press release from the Town of Truckee.

Sensley started his law enforcement career in Southern California before moving to Santa Rosa in 1988 where he currently acts as field services division lieutenant, according to the release.

“I’ve been in public service most of my 29-year professional life. It’s almost dreamlike to be able to serve in a community that my family has been enjoying recreationally for nearly 15 years,” Sensley said in the release.

He has a Bachelor’s degree in organizational management, a Masters degree in Business Administration, and is a business and management Ph.D. candidate, according to the release. He has also been involved in international consulting and is recognized as an expert in combating human trafficking.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Sensley has a wife and two children.

He will become Truckee’s third police chief since the town incorporated.
