Chief Koford


Chief Doug Koford
Interim Police Chief, City of Clayton

Chief Koford is the former Sheriff of Napa County and Police Chief for the City of American Canyon. He retired in 2012 after nearly 40 years of experience in Law Enforcement, which included: Patrol, SWAT, Mountain Rescue, K-9 Officer, Criminal and Coroner Investigations and Narcotics.

He is a graduate of Sacramento State University in Criminal Justice, and the FBI National Academy.

He believes that law enforcement agencies today must work hard to build strong partnerships and positive relationships with the community they serve. He believes that the men and women of the Clayton Police Department have done a wonderful job at this very important task.

His motto is "Do The Right Thing." When he saw this same motto displayed here in Clayton, he knew he was in the right place!
