New Davenport Police Chief

Davenport Police Department

A new chief has been chosen for the Davenport Police Department, at least on an interim basis. This afternoon, City Administrator Corri Spiegel announced the appointment of Major Paul Sikorski.

He is a 27 year veteran of the department, and will take over August first from Don Schaeffer who's retiring after 44 years of service. 

Just last March, Sikorski was appointed assistant chief of the department, after serving as commander of the Patrol Division. He's also led the Services Division and worked as a supervisor in the Criminal Investigation Division. 

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.
