Dan Donath, a 25-year veteran of the Bloomington Police Department, was named the city's next police chief during an announcement Wednesday at City Hall.
"He was the obvious choice," City Manager Tim Gleason said.
Donath, 50, joined BPD in 1994 and most recently served as assistant chief. He was co-interim chief during the search process for a new chief. Former Chief Clay Wheeler retired in June.
