One of the first duties of newly appointed City Manager Gina Nash will be to hire a new police chief. The position was vacated in February when former chief Dennis Veach retired after holding the position for eight years. Todd Renshaw, a retired public safety director from the city of Frisco became the interim chief.

Renshaw saw the interim position in Sachse as a great opportunity to continue his law enforcement career for a short period.

After retiring as Frisco’s public safety director Renshaw was in a consulting practice working with police and fire departments to identify and develop their future leaders.

“The opportunities in Sachse are limitless,” he said. “I have had the opportunity to work with the Sachse staff and learn from them as well as convey some of what I have learned about policing with a community over the past 32 years.”

Qualified candidates for the police chief position should submit a resume online by visiting the website at www.waters-company.recrutiment.com.

The first review of applications will take place June 19. Following the first review date, applications will be screened against criteria.

Required education will include a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with major coursework in police science, criminal justice, public administration, or a closely related field. While the city of Sachse has established minimum qualifications and credentials as described, each candidate’s background and employment history will be reviewed for an outstanding level of professional accomplishment, community interaction and ethical conduct.
