This decision was not made lightly, hastily or for any reason related to the Town of Truckee, their staff or leadership. Chief Billingsley has been an invaluable member of the Department Head team, bringing an important perspective and contributing to many community issues, and has lead the police department during the challenges of the pandemic and more recently, the cyber security breach. Since his promotion to Police Chief, we have restructured and increased command personnel, created a community advisory board, and increased educational opportunities and community dialog about wildfire season and power outages.
Chief Randall Billingsley has announced his retirement from the Truckee Police Department effective December 31, 2021, after 28 years in law enforcement. This was not planned when he accepted the position last year, but has been made due to a number of private circumstances.
“Chief Billingsley has lead our police department through some difficult challenges over the past two years,” said Town Manager Jen Callaway. “I am tremendously grateful for his leadership and support. His commitment to the Town of Truckee and the Truckee Police Department has been incredible.”
Chief Billingsley has been proud to lead the Truckee Police Department and has complete confidence in his command staff to manage the department until a new process can take place in 2022. The Town Manager is exploring all options in relation to the selection of a future Police Chief.
We want to thank Chief Billingsley for his years of service to the Town of Truckee and Nevada County and wish him a wonderful retirement.
