Moorhead’s Police Chief Set To Retire in July

MOORHEAD, Minn. After a 40 year career in law enforcement, Moorhead’s Police Chief announces it’s time for him to retire.

David Ebinger first served as an officer in Little Rock, Arkansas for 28 years. He was hired as the Chief of Moorhead’s Police Department 12 years ago.

He says one of the reasons he took the job is because his wife is from Minnesota.

Ebinger says Moorhead has been an incredibly supportive community to work for, but knows he’s leaving it in great hands.

“We have people that are really stepping up now and with the opening of our new law enforcement center over there, it’s a new era and I think maybe it’s time the old guy that’s been here twelve years steps back, takes a rest and lets some of the talent we’ve developed within this police department take the helm and lead it up to the next level,” Ebinger said.

Ebinger’s final day will be July 27th. He plans on sticking around to help the new chief transition.
