Muskego Police Chief Paul Geiszler went 'off duty' for the last time on Dec. 31, and started his retirement, leaving the department in the hands of Craig Moser, a captain and 28-year veteran who took on the chief's role.
"Jan. 1 was our first watch under Chief Craig Moser," said Lt. Dave Constantineau, "and we look forward to working under Chief Moser’s direction, and can assure you we will continue to provide the high caliber of service our citizens have come to expect."
However, veteran officer and Lieutenant Rick Rens was also named as the department's new captain to replace Moser.
Jan. 1 also marked the start of Officer Ann Shaw’s assignment as the department's new Community Resource Officer.
Shaw told Muskego Patch, "it's been a few years that we had someone in the position, but it's been reinstated. My job will be to coordinate all of the community programs like Safety City, D.A.R.E., and the like. On the other side, my goal will to be to involve more of our officers in these programs so they are more visible in the public to develop that relationship."
New changes to the city's website will also impact communications between the department and the public, and Shaw said she hopes that her position can help communicate how the public can be more interactive with department alerts.
