Welcome Chief Hahn!

I am honored to have the opportunity to return home and serve the community and department that I love.

I look forward to working collaboratively with our entire city to ensure every street in every neighborhood has the opportunity to thrive.  It is no secret that we continue to see strained relationships between law enforcement and some segments of our community that are rooted in a lack of trust. It is our commitment to collaboratively build trusting relationships in all neighborhoods of Sacramento, which improves the quality of life for everyone in our city.  

I look forward to the great things we will achieve for OUR City, Together.
