Kober Promoted to Waukesha Police Captain

Capt. Kevin Kober will lead the Patrol Division at the Waukesha Police Department following Capt. Ron Tischer's departure to be the police chief in La Crosse.

Waukesha Police Lt. Kevin Kober was promoted Monday night by the Police and Fire Commission to the position of captain.

Kober, who most recently served in the Criminal Investigations Division at the police department, has previously served as the lieutenant in the Patrol Division and as a leader on the tactical unit. Kober will oversee the Patrol Division and be the tactical unit's commander in his new role as captain.

Kober is being promoted into the position held by Capt. Ron Tischer, who is leaving the Waukesha Police Department to become the police chief in La Crosse.

Kober has been with the Waukesha Police Department since April 8, 1996.
