Berthoud picks police chief
Forrest will be on the beat beginning Oct. 3


BERTHOUD — Robert Forrest, a former lieutenant with the Cherry Hills Police Department, will become Berthoud’s new police chief.

“It’s been my goal to work my way up and become a police chief,” the 52-year-old from Highlands Ranch said.

Berthoud Police Chief Bill Wegener announced his retirement in May. His last day on the job is Aug. 31.

Forrest will start his new job on Oct. 3. Until then, Officer Carol Hayes will serve as interim police chief.

“Bill’s shoes are going to be hard to fill, no question,” town administrator Jim White said. But he said he hopes Forrest will “leave a similar legacy.”

Forrest works as a background investigator for the Civil Service Commission for the city and county of Denver.

The commission tests entry-level and promotional candidates in the Denver police and fire departments, hears disciplinary appeals and is responsible for policy administration.

Before that, Forrest was a lieutenant on the police force in Cherry Hills Village, which is about the same size as Berthoud.

And working in a small town provides an important one-on-one relationship with people that you don’t get in larger cities, Forrest said.

“It’s an excellent opportunity with an array of challenges that I look forward to,” he said. Berthoud’s “a beautiful place to work and to live.”
