SCOTT HELLER

City Manager Cleve Morris introduced the new Placerville police chief, Scott Heller, at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. Heller moves into the position held by retired Police Chief George Nielsen and Interim Police Chief Mike Scott on Sept. 3.

He comes to Placerville from Modesto where he was assistant investigative services division commander for the Modesto Police Department.

Following  high school graduation from a Bay Area high school, Heller joined the U.S. Air Force where he served for  four years during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After his discharge, Heller earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Master’s degree in Emergency Services Administration. He joined the Modesto police force in 1997.

“We had a very intensive recruitment process,” said Morris, “and all the investigators through all of the phases were very impressed with Scott.”

Heller had an opportunity to meet some of the members of the Placerville Police Department at the council meeting. Heller will be formally sworn in at the Sept.10 City Council meeting.
