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.”
