Danny Renfrow

Truckee Police Chief

By day, Danny Renfrow is the Chief of Police of the Truckee Police Department but by night you better watch out because this man is a dance floor hazard. He is a third generation Nevada County native and grew up in the Nevada City area. This is where all his early age experience comes in because of dance parties with his older sister.

Danny has worked for the Truckee police department for over twenty years beginning his law enforcement profession at the rank of entry police officer. Danny has held numerous assignments over the years to include field training officer, use of force instructor, detective, patrol sergeant, detective sergeant, and operations lieutenant before being selected as the police chief at the Town of Truckee.

Although he grew up occasionally being a part of his sister’s dance parties, he considers himself more of a wallflower and tries to stay far away from it except for watching his daughter’s dance performances and occasionally dancing with his wife.
