State police association to install first woman as president

San Mateo police chief to take helm of organization at ceremony tomorrow

The California Police Chiefs Association will install its first female president on Wednesday, when San Mateo Police Chief Susan E. Manheimer will take the helm of the organization's executive board.

Manheimer has served on the board of directors of the 338-member organization since 2002 and was elected third vice president in 2007, according to Cal Chiefs.

She will be installed as president at the group's annual training symposium at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose.

Manheimer has been San Mateo's police chief since 2000 and spent 16 years with the San Francisco Police Department before that.

She has a Bachelor of Arts in business management from Saint Mary's College in Moraga and masters in educational leadership from San Diego State University.

The chiefs association was founded in 1966, and its membership represents municipal districts containing 78 percent of the state's residents.

What is her background in policing? What were her responsibilities before she became a police chief?

That would be incorrect. It's not the end of story. Different officers specialize in different things. What was her specialty?
