Swearing In-KPD Chief

Assistant City Manager, and a former Chief of Police for the City of Killeen, Dennis Baldwin shakes hands with Killeen's newest Chief of Police, Charles Kimball, as Assistant Police Margaret Young looks on, during a ceremony that took place at the KPD Headquarters on Friday, Feb. 16, 2018.

The city of Killeen will host a retirement reception for Assistant City Manager Dennis Baldwin from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday at Killeen Civic & Conference Center. The public is invited to attend.

Baldwin joined the city in 1984 as a police officer. He worked his way through the ranks culminating in his appointment to Killeen Police Chief in 2004, a post he held for 12 years.

In 2016, Baldwin was appointed interim city manager until the hire of City Manager Ron Olson in 2017. Baldwin then assumed the role of assistant city manager.

City staff is hosting the celebration to honor Baldwin’s 35 years of dedicated service to the community on his final day of employment, according to a city news release.
