Placer County Sheriff Announces Promotions
Auburn, CA -- Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner is pleased to announce two promotions.
Lt. Dennis Walsh has been promoted to the rank of captain and has assumed command of the North Lake Tahoe Station. Captain Walsh most recently led the transition team that coordinated the recent opening of the South Placer Adult Correctional Facility. His steady leadership served him well during that demanding time.
Captain Walsh started working at the Placer County Sheriff's Office in 1993, when he first worked in corrections and patrol. He was promoted to sergeant in 2003, and worked assignments in patrol, corrections and supervised the Crimes Against Persons Unit in investigations. He promoted to the rank of lieutenant in 2010, and has worked in corrections since then.
Sgt. Carol Walsh has been promoted to the rank of lieutenant. Carol has been at the Placer County Sheriff's Office for 19 years. She started as a deputy and worked in corrections and patrol. She was promoted to sergeant in 2009 and was assigned to the North Lake Tahoe Station until October, 2012. She has been a patrol sergeant in Auburn since then. Carol also supervises the Critical Accident Response Team (CART). She will now oversee court services. Her administrative skills and attention to detail will serve her well in her new assignment.
Lt. Dave Powers will replace Captain Walsh, and will transfer from the courts to operations at the South Placer Adult Correctional Facility.
