Darlington Police Chief Jason King was recently appointed by the president of the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association (WCPA) to its statewide Police Chief Mentoring Committee.
King is one of only eight police chiefs from throughout the state of Wisconsin appointed to the committee. The purpose of the WCPA Mentoring Committee is to work with newly appointed police chiefs from throughout the state to mentor them and pair them with seasoned veterans within the police profession to discuss and plan for the unique challenges new police chiefs face.
The WCPA, which was created in 1907, provides services to over 400 Wisconsin chiefs of police and the associate members of their command staff.
King is a life-long resident of Darlington and has served with the Darlington Police Department for 21 years. He possesses a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and is a current graduate student at UW-Platteville pursuing his Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice Administration.
King, who is also a graduate of the UW Law School’s Problem Oriented Leadership Institute for Chief Executive Officers and the UW-Extension’s Community Leadership Alliance, has been Darlington’s police chief for over eight years.
