KALISPELL – Kalispell officially has a new police chief.
Captain Doug Overman has been promoted to Kalispell Chief of Police, according to a social media post on the Kalispell City Government Facebook page.
Overman has been with the Kalispell Police Department since 2000 and has worked in several different positions.
“Doug’s engagement with the employees, community, and respective partners will be an asset to the organization as he begins his tenure as the Chief of Police.” Kalispell City Manager Doug Russell said. “He demonstrates a character and skill set that will provide for successful leadership of the department.”
Kalispell has been searching for a new police chief since the end of 2017 when former chief Roger Nasset announced he was leaving after a 24-year career with the department.
