Shawano Police Chief Dan Mauel officially took his oath Wednesday night as he was sworn into his position in front of family and friends, members of the Shawano Police Department and the Shawano Common Council.
Humbled by the honor, he thanked those who helped him get to this position, as well as those he works with in the police department
“I don’t think the community really understands the quality and professional people they have working for the city, for them,” Mauel said after his oath. “This community is great. I came back here after leaving and I would never leave again. The community support here is above anywhere else.”
Mauel was named interim chief in March and given the position full-time in July.
