                          HON. TOM McCLINTOCK

                             of california

                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, October 13, 2011

  Mr. McCLINTOCK. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in recognition of Police 
Chief Nicholas Sensley of Truckee, California.
  Chief Sensley began his public service in law enforcement in 1987 as 
a police and fire dispatcher with the UCLA Police Department. Nicholas 
was promoted to Police Officer in 1988 after graduating from the Los 
Angeles County Sherriff's Academy STARS Center, where he would begin 
serving as a Recruit Training Officer in 1990--one of the earliest 
returning instructors in the Academy's history. In May of 1991 he 
joined the Santa Rosa Police Department where he served in numerous 
assignments until ultimately departing in November 2008 as Patrol 
Lieutenant. In December of that year, Nicholas was appointed Chief of 
Police in Truckee, where he has served to this day.
  Nicholas's service to the communities in which he has lived 
undoubtedly deserves the thanks and appreciation of his many 
constituents, but it is impossible to measure his contribution as a 
public servant if we limit the examination to California alone. 
Throughout his career, Chief Sensley has developed an expertise in 
mitigating the terrible plight of human trafficking that affects 
millions each year. He has worked as a consultant and developer in the 
United States, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the South Caribbean since 
1998, playing an instrumental role in facilitating training, education 
and effective counter-human-trafficking initiatives globally. He has 
also been acknowledged as an international expert on significant 
community problem-solving by the US Department of Justice, the US 
Department of State, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in 
Europe (OSCE), the International Centre for Migration Policy 
Development, and by other international governments and organizations 
for his contributions.
  Mr. Speaker, it is with a grateful heart that I rise today to thank 
Chief Nicholas Sensley for his many years of public service to the 
people of California. I wish him well as he retires from police work to 
accept a position to continue advancing human freedom with Humanity 
United in Washington, DC.
