Fairfield’s Top Cop is Retiring

After nearly three years as Fairfield’s police chief and almost three decades in law enforcement, Randy Fenn is retiring.

The Daily Republic reports that Fenn is stepping down in May. Councilmember Catherine Moy said the recruitment process for a permanent and interim replacement will begin immediately.

Fenn joined the Concord Police Department in 1991 and was promoted to sergeant 10 years later. He went to work for the Truckee police force in 2006 and joined Fairfield in 2012, where he helped establish the Homeless Intervention Team. He was named the city’s top cop in 2017.

Fenn has not announced post-retirement plans, but Mayor Harry Price said he thinks Fenn would make a great police Academy instructor.
