This morning TPD officers responded to a bear cub stuck inside a truck. The doors closed behind the cub and the mom was left outside. She tried her best to free her cub but she tried a little too hard and broke the door handles off, leaving no way out for her cub. Officers used beanbag rounds to divert the mom away from the truck and also to create an exit route for the cub. Please use this video as a reminder for all to lock your doors to prevent would be burglars of any species. #bebearaware #bearaware #livingwithwildlife

Our department often relies on all of you to be our eyes and ears in Truckee. Thanks to our community partners, our officers found and arrested two thieves. Last Friday, our officers responded to a call at the Trout Creek Recreation Center after a wallet was stolen from a locker. Luckily, there was surveillance video showing a man entering and leaving the Center. Within one hour, the victimโ€™s credit card was used to purchase $1,800 worth of gift cards at the local Safeway. Our officers were provided additional video footage of the same suspect along with a woman purchasing the gift cards. The following evening, officers received a call of a person causing a disturbance in the Rite Aid parking lot. Our officer arrived and recognized the person as the suspect from the surveillance videos. Both suspects were wearing the same clothes from the day before. The officer searched the suspectsโ€™ vehicle and found several unreported stolen IDs, numerous cell phones, burglary tools, stolen property, and drugs. Tyler Goforth, from Walnut Creek, faces a number of charges including: narcotics possession and burglary. Jesslynn Felix, also from Walnut Creek, was also arrested. Both remain in custody at the Nevada County Jail.

On September 29th, the Truckee Police Department was bestowed the honor to attend Sacramento Sheriff Deputy Mark Stasyukโ€™s memorial service in Roseville, CA. Deputy Mark Stasyuk was killed in the line of duty September 17th, when a gunman opened fire as deputies responded to a disturbance call; Deputy Mark Stasyuk was 27 years old and just married in March of this year. Three Truckee Police Officers represented the department with a marked patrol vehicle in a sea of amber and red lights with other departments from across the country. Police representatives from the New York City Police Department, Boston Police Department, Chicago Police Department, and San Diego Police Department attended, as well as Officers from Canada. The gathering commenced at 10:00 a.m. at the Bayside Adventure, a venue equipped to hold the 1200+ in attendance, and a venue known too well for officers' funerals. The service was befitting an officer killed in the line of duty, honorable, and professional to the finest detail. On behalf of the Truckee Police Department, we wish to extend the most heartfelt condolences to the Stasyuk family, the Sacramento County Sheriffโ€™s Department, and the greater Sacramento community.

This morning the Truckee Police Department participated in a multi-agency training exercise at the Tahoe Forest Hospital. Truckee Police, with the assistance of the Truckee Fire Protection District, CHP - Truckee, and Tahoe Forest Health System Staff, conducted an exercise that focused on the importance and complexity of a unified response by personnel in the event of a real emergency within the hospital. These scenarios are hands-on and allow hospital staff to gain confidence in their role and response during real emergencies. The Truckee Police Department participates in these exercises regularly; we recognize the importance of working with our community partners and allied agencies in order to provide training for everyone that could potentially be involved in a critical incident within our community. Make sure youโ€™re in the know in the event of a real critical incident and subscribe to our Nixle alerts at
