There has been a shakeup in the upper ranks of the City of Kewaunee Police Department. Frank Salentine retired as Police Chief last October with veteran officer James Kleiman taking over responsibilities on January 3rd. On Monday, Robin Mueller was promoted to Assistant Chief and that leaves a void that should be filled by the beginning of next month. The deadline for applications has passed with interviews for a new officer set to be conducted the last week of January. Kleiman says the requirements to be an officer in the city have changed significantly in the past two decades.
Kleiman says the transition to Police Chief is going smoothly and he expects the hiring process to be a generally pleasant experience as well.
