CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The City of Corvallis named Captain Nick Hurley as the new chief of police, effective June 30. 

Hurley will replace outgoing Chief Jon Sassaman who plans to retire later this year after 32 years with the department.

According to a news release, Hurley brings more than 20 years of experience in law enforcement to the job and currently serves as a police captain with the department. Hurley also has a background in education, including a degree in American Sign Language and English Interpretation from Western Oregon University and a master’s degree in college administration from Oregon State University.

Hurley was appointed the new chief by Corvallis City Manager Mark Shepard. 

“I am humbled and honored to be appointed the next Chief of Police for the City of Corvallis,” Hurley said in a news release. “Over the next few months I will have daily access to Chief Sassaman as we begin the handoff of responsibilities to ensure a smooth transition for the department and the community.”

A public reception with the community is planned for July.
