The City has selected Travis Gullberg to serve as Police chief after a nationwide search and community input.

Candidates participated in numerous interview panels beginning with the Deputy City Manager and Human Resources director before moving on to an internal interview, public safety professionals panel, community forum and final interviews with Gresham’s City Manager, Deputy City Manager and City attorney.

“Mr. Gullberg has worked with Gresham Police for many years through his role at the Sheriff’s Office. He brings years of law enforcement experience, a passion for community engagement, and a dedication to building community trust to this position,” said Corey Falls, Deputy City Manager.

Gullberg has served the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office since 1998. He is currently the Captain of the Community Partnership Unit and designated Chief of Police for the Transit Police Division.

He began his 25-year law enforcement agency career as a police officer with the City of Rock Springs, Wyo., in 1996. Gullberg received his Bachelor of Science in Sociology and Social Work degree from Warner Pacific College and his Graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice Education from the University of Virginia. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy.

“My roots are here in Gresham, and I’m thrilled to be able to join the Gresham Police Department,” said Gullberg. “I have the utmost respect for Gresham officers. Together, I’m confident we will move forward and meet the call to serve this community.”

Gullberg will begin serving as Gresham Police Chief in August after the completion of a background check.
