On behalf of the City of Storm Lake, Keri Navratil, City Manager is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Cole as Storm Lake’s Police Chief effective February 1, 2020.  As a dedicated member of the Storm Lake Police Department for twenty-five years, the City is confident of a bright future under Chief Cole’s leadership.

Some time ago, Storm Lake’s Public Safety Director Mark Prosser announced his retirement effective January 31, 2019.  As authorized by the Storm Lake Civil Service Commission, lengthy recruitment was conducted.  Following the process, the Civil Service Commission provided City Manager Navratil with a list of eligible candidates for the Police Chief position.

“Chief Cole’s background in law enforcement, commitment to the community and dedication to quality policing make him the right fit for the position,” said City Manager Navratil.  “I look forward to working with Chief Cole as a member of the City’s leadership team.”

Being Storm Lake Proud is not one day, one week, one month or one event.  Being Storm Lake Proud is a magnificent lifestyle!
