Veteran officer taking over as Kewaunee Police Chief

Jim Kleiman, the Kewaunee Police Department's interim chief, will be sporting a new title in the new year.  The word interim will be dropped when the 30-year veteran officially becomes Kewaunee Police Chief.  Kleiman has held numerous positions since joining the force in 1989 as a part-time officer. He's long aspired to become police chief and was named assistant chief in 2014.   Kleiman believes the transition to chief will be a smooth one because of his long ties to Kewaunee and help from his retiring predecessor.


Kleiman has also served with the Kewaunee Fire Department. One of his first duties as police chief will be to name an assistant police chief on January 6th.  The next step will be to recruit a new full-time officer.
