Rinehimer Selected for New Assistant County Administrator Position
Rinehimer holds a bachelor's degree in Criminology from St. Leo University and a master's degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Cincinnati. He has been with the James City County Police Department since 1995 and has served as Police Chief since 2013. Prior to that, Rinehimer served four years in the U.S. Navy. He is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy, the University of Richmond's Professional Executive Leadership School and the FBI's Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar. He is a board member for the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police and has previously served as President of the Hampton Roads Chiefs of Police Association.
The Board of Supervisors created a second Assistant County Administrator position last fall. In his new role, Rinehimer will be responsible for oversight of the Police Department, Fire Department and Social Services.
“Mr. Rinehimer has demonstrated strong leadership and commitment to James City County during his tenure,” said County Administrator Scott Stevens. “I am excited to welcome him into this new role and look forward to working with him to meet the needs of our community.”
