The Monona Police and Fire Commission has narrowed its search for a new Police Chief to 2 finalists. The individual selected will replace Walter Ostrenga, the former Police Chief who retired at the end of 2020. The process to find a new Police Chief began in February and included a community input session and a community feedback survey. The City received 24 applications for the position, and the Police and Fire Commission has narrowed the candidate pool down to 3, who will have final interviews with the Police and Fire Commission in closed session on Monday, May 10th.
The Police and Fire Commission co-hosted a community engagement event with GovHR recruiters and the Nehemiah Center for Urban Leadership to meet with the selected finalist candidates on May 6th.
