SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Sacramento County Undersheriff Mark M. Iwasa has been hired as Sacramento State’s new campus police chief effective Jan. 3, the university announced Monday.
Iwasa replaces former chief Dan Davis, who retired earlier this month. Former campus chief Ken Barnett has been serving as interim chief.
Iwasa has more than 25 years of law enforcement experience. He’s also familiar with the Sac State campus, having earned a bachelor’s in economics in 1990 and a master’s in public policy and administration in 1993.
“Undersheriff Iwasa is a seasoned officer with demonstrated knowledge, experience and skills in federal and California statutory code, case law, civil law and standards,” said Ming-Tung “Mike” Lee, Sacramento State’s interim vice president of Administration and Business Affairs and chief financial officer.
Iwasa takes over a campus that has had several incidents of sexual assault over the past year and also has been targeted by metal thieves stealing catalytic converters from vehicles in university parking lots.
