On Thursday, May 30th, 2019, Tribal Council and the community welcomed Chief Michael Longhat and Officer Micheal Cizek to the Meskwaki Nation. The officers from the Bureau of Indian Affairs came to the Meskwaki Nation to assist the Meskwaki Police Department as it recruits additional team members. At the community event, new Police Chief Jacob Molitor was sworn in. Chief Molitor began working as a police officer at the MNPD in 2012 and was promoted to detective in 2016. He has been dedicated to the community for many years.
Molitor received his Bachelor of Science in Law Enforcement from Minnesota State University Mankato and received his Masters of Science in Public Safety Executive Leadership through St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. Congratulations, Chief Molitor, on your new position with the MNPD. Thank you for your dedication and leadership to the Meskwaki Community.
