The Three Chiefs

Last night the police union held a retirement event for recent retirees.  Other than funerals it is rare to see chiefs in the same place at the same time.  Former chiefs Eli Miletich (middle) Scott Lyons (left) and I attended the event.  We snapped a quick picture to memorialize the rare moment.  Former chief Miletich began with Duluth PD in 1958 and was chief from 1982-1992.  Scott Lyons began with Duluth PD in 1976 and served as chief from 1992-2003 and I was appointed chief in 2006. That's about 27 or 28 years of DPD chiefing. No doubt there is some good, bad and sad stories in those years.  Chief Miletich wrote a book on his time at DPD.   Roger Waller served as chief from 2003-2006,but did not attend the event.

There were many other retirees at the event and it was great to hear the stories and see everyone.  Duluth PD has an interesting and long history.  I would like to find a way to capture it before it is gone forever.
