TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Toledo Mayor-Elect D. Michael Collins has announced appointments for several director-level positions in his administration.
Among those named to a new position is Lt. Bill Moton, who will replace Derrick Diggs as chief of police Jan. 2, pending City Council confirmation.
"He will engage with and he will have the total support of the men and women in our department because he leads by example," said Collins. "I've watched him throughout his career and I always looked at a person that demonstrated the leadership qualities consistent with a Marine and the ability to communicate and garner the respect of his peers."
Moton is a decorated Marine Corps war veteran, who joined the Toledo Police Department back in 1983. Collins says he's confident in his leadership abilities and will work towards making good on some campaign promises, such as reopening the Northwest District Police Station, putting more focus on the block watch program and returning beat integrity by having more officers working in designated neighborhoods.
Both Moton and Collins say officers working dedicated neighborhood patrols will be a key focus for the TPD.
"Police officers are only as good as the information they receive," explained Moton. "What we're trying to develop is put permanent crews in these beats, people that the community sees everyday and can build a relationship with them."
Collins has named Bob Reinbolt as his chief of staff. Reinbolt held that same position under former Mayor Carty Finkbeiner. Also, longtime Councilman George Sarantou, pending City Council confirmation, will become the next city finance director.
