Vallejo police chief to retire

By From page A6 | February 05, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Vallejo Police Chief Joseph Kreins has announced his retirement, though he will remain on the job until the city finds a replacement.

Kreins came to the city in 2012 as interim police chief after retiring as the police chief of Novato. He had intended to stay a few months, but ended up having the “interim” removed from his title.

After arriving, he realized he had a lot to offer by providing a positive leadership model, Kreins said in a press release.

“At that point, I was willing to reinstate and get down to the business of transformative change within the organization,” he said.

He is confident the department has a strong foundation in being transformed and reinvented in a positive way, Kreins said. He praised a department that he said works hard for residents, often under difficult, complex and dangerous circumstances.
