One week left to apply for La Crosse police chief

Brad Williams



There’s still time for candidates to apply for the job of La Crosse’s police chief.

The deadline for applications is Friday, August 16th.

Doug Happel from the city police and fire commission says about 10 resumes have been received so far, but he expects several more to be submitted just before the deadline.

About a month ago, the commission appointed Rob Abraham as interim police chief, to succeed Ron Tischer, who moved to Arizona.

Happel says the commission could start reviewing the applications at a meeting scheduled for August 22nd.
