City of Racine – Today, the incoming Chief of Police for the Racine Police Department, Maurice Robison, announced that he intends to transition from Cincinnati, Ohio during the month of April and aims to start his new post as Chief of Police in the City of Racine by mid-May.

“I am looking forward to serving the residents of the City of Racine as their next Chief of Police. I am excited to move to a great community on a Great Lake. Racine has a national reputation for its outstanding investments in the Community Oriented Policing Model, and I want to build on the legacy of Chief Howell and those who came before him to expand on that model,” said incoming Chief Maurice Robinson.

“I plan to transition from Cincinnati to Racine over the month of April and aim to start work by the middle of May. I look forward to meeting the officers and the command staff of the Racine Police Department, as well as getting to know and learn from members of the community who we serve. I have a lot to learn about the City of Racine, but I am eager for my family to establish roots and begin our lives in this wonderful community,” continued Chief Robinson.

“On behalf of the City of Racine, I want to enthusiastically welcome Maurice Robinson as our next Chief of Police. I had the opportunity to meet with Chief Robinson at length during the interview process, and I have every confidence that he shares our community’s values. He specifically mentioned that he was attracted to our community because of RPD’s leadership in community oriented policing. This is a good fit. I look forward to him being an integral part of the City’s leadership team.” said Mayor Cory Mason.
