PRINEVILLE, OR -- Prineville’s interim Police Chief has picked a date to retire and the new chief is ready to take the helm. Dale Cummins was hired as a Captain six months ago, after serving as assistant chief with Gresham Police for 27 years. 

 

Current Chief Les Stiles tells KBND he's pleased with The selection of Cummins as his successor. “Dale has been here six months. He’s a really good addition to the team. He’s got everything in terms of all of the qualifications for a professional police chief in 2015. He’s there.” Cummins is out of the office with an illness and was unavailable to comment.
 
Stiles came on board in August 2014, replacing the fired Eric Bush. He will finish updating the department’s accreditation and a study on the future of Crook County 911 before stepping down at the end of February. 
 
Cummins will be sworn in as the new Police Chief March first.
