News Release—March 21, 2014



Middleton, WI: 



The Middleton Police Commission has selected Captain Chuck Foulke to replace retiring Chief of Police Brad Keil.  According to Mayor Kurt Sonnentag, “I’m very pleased with the Commission’s selection of Chuck Foulke to be our next Chief of Police.  Chuck has served superbly over the past 30+ years at the Middleton Police Department (MPD) in every facet of police work.  He is capable and well-prepared to lead the department, and he has the perfect temperament and vision for the work necessary to keep MPD at the forefront of law enforcement”.  Captain Foulke will become Chief of Police on March 29, 2014. 



Foulke serves currently as the Captain for Field Services at MPD, and he has a Bachelor’s degree in History and Sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  He also graduated from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy, accredited through the University of Virginia, in 2007.  With MPD Foulke has performed in the profession from the bottom moving up first as an officer for Patrol, School Resource, Juvenile, Detective, Sergeant, Detective Sergeant, and Lieutenant, and over the past several years as Captain for Field Services.  In heading the Field Services of MPD, he has prepared the annual Field Services operating budget of about $3.7 million (75% of the entire PD budget).  Furthermore, he has worked on the collective bargaining team, staffed the License & Ordinance Committee and has served in numerous liaison positions with the community at large.



Chuck Foulke is active in the community as President of the Middleton Kiwanis Club, as a citizen member of the Commission on Youth, and he even finds time to deliver lunches for Meals on Wheels through the Senior Center. 



Foulke will step into Chief Keil’s shoes after the Chief’s last day in office—March 28.  Chief Brad Keil recently announced his retirement from law enforcement in order to take a position as Manager of Corporate Facilities Security for WPS in Monona.  Keil has been Chief of the MPD successfully for 10 years,  leading its initiatives for proactive community policing and programs; strategic planning; state accreditation with very high marks (with great credit to Captain Noel Kakuske); and in reduction of crime. 



We wish Chief Keil a healthy and successful retirement from law enforcement, and we welcome with great anticipation Chuck Foulke to this critical leadership position in the community.  For more information contact: Mike Davis at mdavis@ci.middleton.wi.us or at 821-8358.
