Police Chief Baumann announces retirement

Nov. 30, 2012

Police Chief Baumann submitted his notice of retirement to the president of the Police Commission late today.

The letter reads:

Dear Mr. President, Members fo the Police Commission, Members of the Village Boad and the citizens of Pewaukee:

A noted poet once wrote, 'Work is love made visible.'

After an exceedingly proud 38 years as a police officer, including a resoundingly rewarding 28 years as a Chief of Police, I am announcing my retirement from active duty, effective April 2, 2013.

As I look backwards and reflect on a career that I have cherished, I am overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for the privilege of serving a community so special and the honor of leading the men and women comprising one of the greatest police departments ever. Most of all, I am thankful for the love and support of my family, friends and extended family.

I have slightly revised the poet's words to more accurately reflect the past 38 years, 'Work isn't work when you love what you're doing and whom you're doing it for.'

With love and gratitude, 

Chief Edward M. Baumann
