City of Moline

A new police chief will officially begin working in Moline Wednesday, following Tuesday night's swearing in of Darren Gault during the city council meeting. 

The city will also hold a welcoming open house for Chief Gault in two weeks (8/14) at the police department. 

He joined the East Moline department in 1998, and most recently served as captain. And he'll replace Robert Finney who's served as interim chief since last year. 
 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
