Our current Chief, David Stevenson, began his career as a police officer with the South Lake Tahoe Police Department in June of 1995.
The department has two Lieutenants. Lieutenant Travis Cabral oversees the Operations Division and Lieutenant Shannon Laney oversees the Support Division.
We have five Sergeants and one Detective Sergeant as well as a fluctuating number of officers in charge (OIC). The OICs are selected from the rankings of the existing Sergeant’s list and are the acting supervisors when a Sergeant is not available.
Layla Root is the Administrative Assistant to the Chief of Police.
