Welcome to the webpage of the Truckee Police Department. The Town of Truckee Police Department was officially formed in June of 2001 in the lineage of the Town’s establishment in 1863 and incorporation in 1993.
The Town of Truckee is uniquely geographically located in the easternmost region of Nevada county and is separated from the County Seat and the remaining two incorporated cities by 53 miles, over 2400 feet in elevation over the historic Donner Pass, and many times by severe winter weather conditions. Truckee is the largest municipality in the county with 34 square miles and a full time population of 16,000. Interstate 80 transects through the Town limits for nearly 16 miles. The Truckee Police Department consisting of 25 sworn officers and 8 support staff members serve a large flex population that often doubles on weekends, holidays, and in the summer months. Half of Truckee’s residential units are maintained as second homes or vacation properties. Truckee’s citizens closely preserve its small town atmosphere while welcoming and hosting national and international visitors and events into the Town’s renowned region for year-round outdoor activities.
