Current Castle Rock Police Chief Scott Neves will have a new title in April: Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue Fire Chief. He will replace current Fire Chief Dave LaFave, who has served in the position since 2001 and with Cowlitz 2 since 1983, according to a Cowlitz 2 press release. LaFave announced his retirement earlier this year. Neves will take over on April 1. He has been a Cowlitz 2 volunteer since 1985, with a current ranking of battalion chief and group supervisor, the press release said. He also served on the Cowlitz 2 Board of Commissioners from 2011 until recently, when he resigned to be eligible for consideration for the fire chief position. “Although he has enjoyed his career first as a police officer, and then as police chief for the City of Castle Rock, Scott is looking forward to the challenge of leading Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue,” the press release said.
