PARADISE, Calif. - As of today, there is a new Chief of Police in the town of Paradise.
This begins a new chapter for the Paradise Police Department.
Chief Reinbold said, the main goal for him is to fill vacant positions and hopefully hire additional officers to reach full staffing capacity.
He said right now, it makes a big impact when they don't have full staffing of officers to handle the daily calls for service.
"We need to reinstate our school resource officer position I think that's vital especially in todays climate to have somebody over there as a liasion and have a presence in the schools we also wanna have a traffic enforcement officer again," Chief Reinbold said.
Chief Reinbold said it all relies on funding. If the town of Paradise stable funding then they'll be able to support those positions
Chief Reinbold said how important it is to get out and interact with their community.
National Coffee with a Cop Day is in October, and the Paradise Police Department, including Chief Reinbold plan to be in attendance.
