CHP Traffic Reports

Officer David deRutte is a graduate of Cardinal Newman high school in Santa Rosa and he grew up in Bennett Valley. He has been with the CHP for ten years and really enjoys helping people through his work. When he is not working, you’ll find him hanging out with his two boys. He loves woodworking, exercising, working on his home, barbecuing and playing sports. He is a huge Giants, 49ers, and Warriors fan.

What you don’t know about David is that he is a licensed helicopter pilot, so it makes sense that his preferred super power would be to fly.

His wife likens him to a bear because he is usually chill and calm until someone upsets him (don’t poke the bear)! Like a bear, he also enjoys eating and sleeping in. When it comes to eating, David prefers pizza over pasta and vanilla over chocolate.
