The Nevada City Police Department has hired Sean Mason as a full-time police officer. He will start on patrol Dec. 22. Mason was sworn in by Police Chief Scott Berry Thursday after he took his oath of office and recited the police officer code of ethics.

Mason was born and raised in Nevada County, graduating from Nevada Union High School. He has an associate’s degree from Butte Community College and graduated from the police academy there.

Law enforcement is in Mason’s family background. His father is retiring as a sergeant from the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office.

Mason has been a reserve officer for Nevada City for 13 years and was working as a correctional officer prior to his full-time hiring.
