Share this:

After more than 34 years of service, Sergeant Robert Rahaeuser retired on May 25.

For years, he led the police department’s investigations team and successfully organized evidence that led to the prosecution of many major cases, including the murder of Damon Nicholson in 2009.

Kyle Harriman will become the newest addition to the police department’s sworn force. The recent graduate from the Fullerton College Basic Police Academy has been employed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department as a special sheriff’s officer for the past 10 years. Harriman will begin field training next week with experienced trainers.

Katie Markisz also joined the department as an animal services officer. She has extensive experience in animal care, including a position as wild animal keeper with the Wildlife Conservation Society at the Bronx Zoo in New York. She also has been an equestrian instructor and trainer.
