Canyon Lake resident Rich Fransik was recently promoted to acting chief of police for the City of Norco.
Fransik started his career as a Riverside County Sheriff’s deputy in 2008. He was promoted to the position of K9 corporal in 2011.
Assigned to the Perris Sheriff’s Station, Fransik and his K9, Whiskey, worked in Canyon Lake from 2011 to 2016. After serving the community for six years, Whiskey retired and Fransik was promoted to detective and reassigned to the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station.
In late 2017, Fransik was promoted to sergeant and reassigned to the Cois M. Byrd Detention Center in Temecula. He transferred in 2019 to the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station where he worked patrol and investigations.
This month, Fransik was promoted to lieutenant and transferred to the City of Norco where he will serve as the acting chief of police. “I’m blessed for this opportunity and look forward to working with the citizens of Norco,” Fransik said.
In 2020, Fransik, along with his wife and their two boys, relocated to Canyon Lake where he once worked as a deputy. In his community, Fransik serves as a volunteer on the Security Advisory Committee, assisting the POA with security recommendations and improvements within the community.
When not working or volunteering, Fransik enjoys boating and motorcycle and UTV riding.
