An Update of Madison Police Department Initiatives

Join us on Tuesday, August 11 to hear Police Chief Mike Koval present An Update of Madison Police Department Initiatives.  Please plan to meet at Blackhawk Country Club at 11:30 for networking; we will be seated promptly at 11:55 for lunch. Your entrée choices are Grilled Chicken Craisen Berry Salad, or Craisen Berry Salad. 

Chief Koval will discuss neighborhood and mental health initiatives,  burglary and violent crime units, and engagement with youth.

Michael C. Koval began his career with the Madison Police Department in 1983. His educational background includes being a proud graduate of Madison West High School (which he still proclaims to be the best high school in Madison), a graduate of UW-Madison with a Journalism Degree and obtaining his Law Degree from William Mitchell College of Law. Before becoming the Chief of Police in April of 2014 he was a Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and subsequently returned to MPD and served in Patrol Services. Koval then became the Sergeant of Recruitment and Training for 17 years.

During Koval's tenure he has served in a variety of roles which include police officer, field training officer, field training supervisor, SWAT hostage negotiator, critical response team supervisor, primary legal instructor and sergeant. He is a certified trainer in many State-endorsed subject areas, but favorites include Professional Communications, Crisis Management, Community Policing, Constitutional Law, and Ethics. Koval was an original member of the team which introduced the Department's first narcotics detection dog, assisted with the City of Madison's first police staffing analysis team, created open enrollment recruiting, served on the State of Wisconsin's Law Instructor Advisory Committee and led the Department's legal transition team in teaching mandatory arrest for domestic violence.

Chief Koval is a native of Wisconsin. He enjoys all kinds of sports (in his college days he was Bucky Badger for football, basketball and hockey for three years), but dating back to his childhood days he is particularly passionate about Notre Dame Football! GO BUCKY!! GO IRISH!!
