Lake Lotawana Interim Police Chief

Lake Lotawana Interim Police Chief

June 11, 2016

By Susan Sexton

Randal Wilson, veteran of the Wichita Police Department, has accepted the position of Interim Police Chief at Lake Lotawana.

Chief Wilson, a Wichita native, served for 25 years on the Wichita PD and retired Detective Lieutenant in 2001. He also served as Police Chief in Maize, KS for 2 years and in Mission, KS for 8 years.

After his second retirement in 2011 from the Mission, KS PD, Chief Wilson decided to be a stay-at-home dad and enjoy freedom from the structure and grind of a daily job outside the home.
Chief Wilson and his wife, who works at the USDA, have two young boys at home. He also has two older children and two grandchildren.

Lake Lotawana has been without a Police Chief since January 2016, and so the city administrator approached Chief Wilson about helping. Chief Wilson has now been working as the Interim Police Chief for a couple of weeks, and he will work for a term of 6 months.

Chief Wilson’s duties include providing leadership and administrative relief (paperwork, etc.) for the Lake Lotawana police officers.

Wilson is also assessing personnel and equipment needs for the department. His goal is to find ways to save money, but also provide the necessary tools and technology needs for the officers.

“Change in leadership is a good time for a city to step back and look at the big picture – where they’re headed and where they want to go,” Chief Wilson says of Lake Lotawana.

Once his six months are over, Chief Wilson will move on – but always available to consult with the city as needed. He’s already looking forward to getting back to being a house dad to his wife and two little boys!
