She has had FBI and State of Alaska academy training, and is a certified member of the sexual assault response team.
In a release, City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said Wallace will be an asset to the city in her new role chief.
Wallace replaces T.C. Kamai, who retired in September after 25 years with the KPD.
