Fillmore welcomes new Chief of Police

After an extensive vetting process to select the next chief of police for the city of Fillmore, Captain Eric Tennessen has been named the city’s chief this week as Captain Dave Wareham retires after 32 years of service with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.

Tennessen, who is a 19-year veteran of the sheriff’s office, has an extensive background in investigations, which includes assignments in Camarillo, Moorpark, the Sheriff’s Gang Unit, the Special Crimes Unit, and the Major Crimes Bureau. Tennessen most recently managed patrol operations for the East County / Thousand Oaks station.

Tennessen lives in Camarillo with his wife, Kaylee, and four children. He brings a diverse background to his new position, including a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology as well as a master’s degree in public administration from Cal State Northridge.

The public is invited to get to know Tennessen during four “meet the chief” events scheduled in the coming weeks at the following locations:

Tuesday March 13, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. at Starbucks 650 W. Ventura St. Thursday March 15, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. at One Step a la Vez 421 Sespe Ave.
