UWSP police department welcomes new top cop

Posted:
STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WAOW) -

A familiar face is now the UW-Stevens Point Chief of Police. 

Former Stevens Point Investigation Bureau Supervisor Tony Babl recently accepted the position.

He was been with the police department for nearly 25 years. 

Babl said his well rounded experience has prepared him for his new title at the university. 

"It wasn't like I was planning on leaving the Stevens Point Police Department," Babl said. "I still have a lot of good friends and great relationships there but the opportunity came up and I really couldn't pass it up."

Being right down the street, Babl has worked closely with the university police department for the part two decades, and looks forward to strengthening that relationship.
