Redwood City’s new police chief was sworn in March 8 at a ceremony held at police headquarters on Maple Street.

The new chief, Dan Mulholland, began his career with the Redwood City Police Department in 1985 as a civilian community service officer. During his time with the department, Mulholland has served in every capacity, from patrol officer and detective to SWAT commander and co-team leader of the San Mateo County Terrorist Counter Assault Team. Mulholland succeeds JR Gamez who recently retired as chief.

Other promotions were awarded to Sergeant Junsuh Lee and Lead Police Clerk Addy Silva. New hires were also installed.  They include police officers Matthew Barrea, Domonic Anderson and Athena Maskarich; reserve officers Justin Hong and Kevin Strauss; and dispatcher Temitayo Wilson-Anumudu.

    All the best Gary and Kristine and Gary. Hoss.
