The Deputy City Manager for the City of Twin Falls, Brian Pike, will be retiring on January 17.

Pike's role was created when the city changed its leadership structure back in 2015. Before that, he had been the Twin Falls Police Chief since 2011. In his role, Pike oversaw the City Communications Center, Police Department, Fire Department, and Code Enforcement.

“It’s my belief that community service is the foundation on which public safety functions are established,” Brian Pike said. “I believe the community must partner with our Public Safety Teams to improve our quality of life, and over the past 25 years I worked to instill this principle in the men and women who worked under my direction.”

Before being the Police Chief for Twin Falls, Pike started as a police officer back in 1994 with the Twin Falls Police Department. During that time he worked as a school resource officer, a DARE instructor and mentor, and as a field training officer.

When announcing his retirement, Pike said he wanted to let everyone in the Twin Falls community know how much he appreciates the opportunity he's had over the years to serve the people there.

“It will always be home," Pike said.

He plans to spend his retirement exploring new places with his wife. He also plans to spend more time with his family.
