Amirfar named new Turlock police chief


TURLOCK — Interim Police Chief Nino Amirfar has been selected as the Turlock’s new police chief, the city announced Monday.

He will be sworn in Thursday, Jan. 26 at 11 a.m. at the Assyrian American Civic Club.

Amirfar is a 27-year Turlock police veteran. Before he was appointed as interim chief, he led the Special Operations Division for the department.

“There were a number of well-qualified candidates, but Captain Nino Amirfar stood well above the rest,” said Mayor Gary Soiseth. “Captain Amirfar’s focus on listening to our community, understanding our community, and working alongside our community–along with his strong record of defending our city for over two decades–earned him the position of Turlock’s next chief of police.”

Amirfar was selected from a pool of 38 applicants from throughout the western United States, the city said. That pool was narrowed to eight finalists who had interviews with three separate panels representing the community, executive law enforcement and internal city staff.
