Pacific Grove Gets A Temporary Police Commander

Pacific Grove, what the heck

PGPD Help Wanted

Cassie McSorley, who retired last July from the Salinas department after 30 years in law enforcement, has taken the job on a full-time but temporary basis while Pacific Grove searches for a permanent hire.

Although there are two vacant commander positions in Pacific Grove, Police Chief Vicki Myers plans to convert one of them to a civilian manager position to save money, McSorley said.

The department has been without a commander since Cmdr. John Miller left for a job with another Northern California police agency several weeks ago.

McSorley said she was “very much enjoying” her retirement but wanted to help out. “I thought what the heck, Pacific Grove is a great city.”
