Flagstaff Police Chief To Be Recognized During June 18 Council Meeting

Members of the public are invited to attend a recognition event for Flagstaff Police Chief Dan Musselman during the Tuesday, June 18 Council Meeting. The meeting will start at 3 p.m. and will be held at City Hall (211 W Aspen Ave). Light refreshments will be served.

Chief Musselman began working for the City of Flagstaff in November 1995 as a Police Officer. During his almost 29-year career with the City he served as Corporal Detective, Police Sergeant, Police Lieutenant, and Deputy Police Chief. He began serving as the City of Flagstaff Police Chief in December 2020.

As Police Chief, he was instrumental in creating an alternate response model including the CARE Unit and the implementation of crisis specialist into the Dispatch Center. Under his leadership there has been a tremendous focus on employee retention and appreciation. The Police Department built a local police academy in partnership with Coconino Community College, invested more in wellness and training for officers, and worked to ensure staff have the tools they need to do the job whether it is a new computer-aided dispatch (CAD) console or a video system to identify vehicle locations. Chief Musselman’s focus on serving the community has resulted in a reduction of property and violent crime and the installation of technology that helps keep customers informed. His care for this community goes beyond the Police Department and the City of Flagstaff as he serves local non-profits and supports community members by participating in various fundraisers and special events.

Chief Musselman’s encouragement and support of the Department and the community has been felt by many. The City is honored to have had him serve as the Flagstaff Police Chief and appreciate his many years of dedicated service. We hope you can join us to celebrate his success.
