A vision for Nevada City

Welcome fellow Rotarian and Nevada City Police Chief Dan Foss.

He has also served as the division commander over the divisions of patrol, administration, and investigations. Dan joined the Rotary Club of Madera in 2019.

Join us as Dan shares his vision for Nevada City and his personal stories. In 2015 Dan established his own non-profit organization known as Olive (Overcoming Limitations through Intervention, Value and Empowerment). which provides safety and security to victims of human trafficking. Foss worked through the hurdles to open a much-needed safe house in Madera through his non-profit. It is the only safe house in the county that focuses on victims of sex trafficking.
