Deputy Inspector Donald Gaglione is saying goodbye today to the Milwaukee Police Department after 32 years of service. He is retiring from MPD to become the Chief of Police in the Village of Big Bend. Gaglione started his career with MPD as a Police Aide in 1981 and was promoted to Police Officer in 1983. During his tenure, he served as one of the Department’s first K9 handlers, was a supervisor for the Tactical Enforcement Unit and worked at six of the seven districts in the Department.
Gaglione said, “It was an honor to be a part of such a great Department. Chief Flynn provided a great example as I move on to the Chief of Police position in Big Bend.” Gaglione’s legacy at MPD continues with his son, who is a Police Aide in the Intelligence Fusion Center. The Milwaukee Police Department thanks Deputy Inspector Gaglione for his years of dedication and service and wishes him the best in his new position.
