Public statement regarding the Police Chief Appointment process

March 19, 2014

Commissioners have identified two finalists for further evaluation for appointment as our
next Chief of Police, both currently employed as City of Madison police officers: Sgt. Mike
Koval, and Capt. Carl Gloede.

The PFC has commissioned thorough background investigations of these finalists and will
conduct further interviews and other appropriate review of their applications, their
credentials, and their capacity to provide the department and community leadership
expected of Madison’s Police Chief.

We anticipate that the primary background investigations will be conducted with the
assistance of the Dane County Sheriff’s Department.
