Last Day For Waupun Police Chief

Waupun Police Chief Dale Heeringa retires today after 41 ½ years with the department. He says the City of Waupun has been good for him and his family, but now it is time for him and his wife Nancy to spend some time together. He says he has no plans for other employment at this time. Heeringa worked his way up through the department spending the last 13 ½ years as chief. He’s hoping the Police and Fire Commission will hire his successor from within the department. He says the job was posted internally. He says they have qualified staff that have been mentored and are ready to take over the top positions in the police department. He says there’s nothing fancy planned for his sendoff, just a get together of friends, staff, and colleagues.
