Muskego Names New Police Chief

Capt. Craig Moser will step in for the retiring Chief Paul Geiszler at the end of the year, and brings 27 years' experience on the Muskego Police Department to the position.

The following release was received from the Muskego Police Department:

The Muskego Police and Fire Commission announced today that Captain Craig A. Moser has been selected to succeed Chief Paul Geiszler as Muskego’s next police chief.  Chief Geiszler will be retiring from this position at the end of December after nearly 33 years with the department, at which time Captain Moser will become the new chief. 

Captain Moser has served the Muskego Police Department for the past 27 years and has been involved in all facets of law enforcement.  He has served with the Waukesha County Metro Drug Unit, as well as being assigned as a DARE officer, tactical team leader, field training officer and program supervisor, state certified instructor for firearms, emergency vehicle operation and vehicle contacts, department accreditation manager and a trained accreditation assessor for Muskego.  He was named captain in 2007 and has been overseeing the services division and the detective bureau since that time.

He has completed the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command in 1999 and most recently, in 2007, he was selected and completed the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy (Class #231) in Quantico, VA.  He is a 1985 graduate of Lake Superior State University earning a B.S. in Criminal Justice Law Enforcement.

“We felt we had several very strong candidates for the chief’s position and was extremely pleased with the opportunity to select Captain Moser from this competitive pool,” said Commissioner Ed Gleason.  “His broad-based experience and education will serve Muskego extremely well in the years ahead as he addresses the challenges and needs of our community and provides leadership to the men and women of the Muskego Police Department.”

What is “good policing?” What should you be looking for in a police leader? How is that leader going to be evaluated? Do one or more of the four major obstacles arresting the development of your police department exist? For what they are and how to overcome them follow my blog at http://improvingpolice.wordpress.com/ where other current police improvement issues are discussed. Great policing is accomplished by those who are well-trained and led, restrained in their use of force, honest, and courteous to every person.
