By his own account, the past five years have been a learning experience for Ojai Police Chief Dave Kenney. “The current City Council is the fourth one I've worked with,” he said Feb. 1. “And I've worked with two different City Managers and four administrative sergeants.”
Kenney, who assumed his duties in 2012, will move on effective Feb. 10 with a promotion from captain to commander, a rank that will find him in charge of the Special Services Division of the Ventura COUnty Sheriff's Office (VCSO). His new responsibilities will include oversight of the units for major crimes and narcotics, as well as the air unit, the sheriff's systems bureau and S.W.A.T. operations.
