Montevideo Police Chief Ken Schule was sworn in at the Montevideo City Council meeting last week. We sat down with Schule to learn more about his law enforcement background and the major challenges facing Montevideo from a policing perspective.

Schule says one of his main goals as Chief is improving the officer turnover rate. “We’ve certainly had some turnover in the last few years,” said Schule, “but moving forward I think we have a secure base. We are currently in the hiring process for one additional officer.”

The public is invited to meet Schule and other local law enforcement at the National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 6 from 4 to 8pm at the Montevideo Outdoor Pool. Click here to learn more.
