Lieutenant tapped as new police chief

A lieutenant with 23 years at South Lake Tahoe Police Department has been tapped as the new chief of police to replace Don Muren, whose last day was Friday.

Terry Daniels assumed his new role Saturday, one day after Muren’s last day at the department.

Daniels spent six years as a military police officer and earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and a master’s degree in professional development. He also participated in training for ethics in law enforcement and the role of the chief of police, according to City Manager Dave Jinkens.

Thirty-two applications were received for the opening. Six candidates were interviewed by a panel of several chiefs of police, including South Sacramento and Woodland, and other groups of people within the department.

“Upon his appointment, Daniels will bring considerable knowledge about the department to the job,” Jinkens said in a statement. “He has been active in his community and he is well regarded by department personnel and the city’s management team. He has pledged to build on the success and accomplishments of the past as we move forward into the future.”
