The city has chosen Rosanne Richeal to be its top cop. Richeal, a 20-year law enforcement veteran, was the first woman to command the Sacramento County Jail, the first female motorcycle officer for the sheriff's department and also served as a K-9 officer, according to a city press release.
She once served as Assistant Police Chief for the Rancho Cordova Police Department. Prior to entering law enforcement, she worked as an emergency medical technician.
Rancho Cordova contracts with the sheriff's department for police services. The contract calls a sheriff's captain to be appointed the city's police chief.
Richeal was chosen from three captains interviewed by the city.
