January 19, 2018 – We mourn the loss of retired Officer Michael Harrison who passed away on December 18, 2017. Officer Harrison served the Nevada City Police Department with distinction for over 20 years after settling in Nevada City.

He is well known for his love of the job and of the people he served. He always said, if he wasn’t having fun he wasn’t working. Officer Harrison worked in the true spirit of community policing, building strong positive relationships with those he encountered.

After retiring from the NCPD he continued his public service by joining the civilian police force in Kosovo through the United Nations. Again he enjoyed his work with the community and touring the area during his off hours.
