Why did you decide to become a police officer?
Like most, I decided to become a police officer so that I could help others. I wanted a career that I could be proud of and that would keep me active both physically and intellectually.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The most rewarding part of my current job as Chief of Police is working with new young officers and helping to mold them into the type of police officers who will proudly serve and protect our community for years to come.
What is the most challenging part of your job?
The most challenging part of my job is finding enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished that I want to get done. I have many ideas and goals for our department that I hope to pursue, however, very often the day to day operations take away from my ability to launch new programs or explore new ideas.
What do you value most about Ellsworth?
The relationship that the police department has with the community is what I cherish most about working in the City of Ellsworth. Throughout my time as a police officer in the City of Ellsworth we have enjoyed a relationship of mutual respect with our community members. The showering of appreciation around the holidays with gifts of food for our officers is just one example of the community support which always brings a smile to our officers faces.
How do you plan to celebrate your 15th anniversary?
There will be no celebration. I do appreciate the recognition and I am honored to be the Chief of the Ellsworth Police Department. I consider the past 15 years as only the beginning. I have a lot of work to do and great plans for the future of the Ellsworth Police Department.
Congratulations to Chief Moshier for his 15 years of service with EPD.
