In 2014, Marnie began working with the officers who created the Police Observation Devices (POD) while expanding our automated license plate reader (LPR) program. As of today, there are about 150 PODs across the City and our LPRs assist in locating and recovering stolen vehicles, missing persons and wanted subjects every day.

In 2016, she helped to create our Real Time Crime Center (RTCC) where our access to various surveillance systems across the entire City, POD video and LPR data have changed the way we do police work at the Police Department. Marnie was presented a Distinguished Service Award in 2017 for her work in technology advancements for the department and implementation of the Real Time Crime Center.

January 1, 2022, Marnie was promoted to Captain and assigned to Administrative Services where she was quickly immersed in the many changes to state laws, updates in policy and contracts, plus copious releases of public records and frequent work with the City Attorney’s Office.

Marnie grew up in the east area of Sacramento, attending Peter Burnett, Fern Bacon Basic Middle and was part of the first graduating class at Hiram Johnson West Campus. She has a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with an emphasis in Criminal Justice from Sacramento State. She was the first in her family to become a police officer, wanting to make a difference in the lives of victims who might not have been able to speak for themselves or know how to find their voice.

Marnie has three grown children who live in the greater Sacramento area and welcomed her first grandchild in 2022.
