by Jeb Bing

The California Highway Patrol Dublin-area office, which covers Pleasanton and other Tri-Valley communities, has announced Capt. Christopher Sherry as its new commander.

Sherry, a 20-year veteran of the CHP, succeeds Capt. Linda Franklin. Prior to leading the Dublin area office, Sherry served as commander of the CHP's San Francisco and Castro Valley area offices. He has also worked in the Hayward, Redwood City, San Jose and Contra Costa CHP offices.

"The Tri-Valley is a great place to live, work and play," Sherry said in a statement. "As a resident, it is my honor to serve here ... I look forward to getting out in the community and meeting the people of Dublin and the surrounding communities."

Over his career, Sherry has served numerous roles, including as a field training officer, emergency medical technician and department instructor.

Sherry has a bachelor's degree in political science and a paralegal certificate from California State University, Chico. He is married with two children.

The Dublin area office covers 57 miles of freeway on Interstates 580 and 680, and 275 miles of unincorporated roadways throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
