Klamath Falls policeman Robert Dentinger has a new job to do for the City’s police department today: run it.
When he arrived for work yesterday, Dentinger was a Klamath Falls Police Department captain. By the end of the day, he became its new Chief.
The City says its City Manager offered Dentinger the position yesterday, and his acceptance made the move effective immediately.
Chief Dentinger has worked in law enforcement since 1996, spending his full law enforcement career with the City of Klamath Falls. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Northwest Christian University in Management and is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy.
Klamath Falls former Police Chief David Henslee announced his plans for retirement in January, and the City conducted a nationwide recruiting process for his replacement, choosing Dentinger from four final candidates.
