A Message from Chief Weible

Chief of Police Jeff WeibleI wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself and share some of the exciting things going on with the Maize Police Department. My name is Jeff Weible and I am the new Chief of Police for the Maize Police Department. I come to Maize after serving over 30 years with the Wichita Police Department. I retired from Wichita as the Captain over the Patrol North Bureau. In my time with Wichita, I had the opportunity to serve in several capacities: Patrol, Investigations, Community Policing, Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain.

I am extremely excited to work in this new role. Our staff here at the Maize Police Department is top notch.  Currently, we are working to fill open positions and unlike the struggles of other departments around the nation, we have a very good applicant pool and should be fully staffed in the very near future.

Another item we've been working on is to add three School Resource Officers for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. The new positions will allow us to be more proactive and have positive interactions with the youth in our middle, intermediate and elementary schools. We are also working to improve our technology that will assist with protecting our community, which includes Axon camera updates (body-worn cameras) and Flock Safety license plate reading cameras.

This is an exciting time of growth for our Maize Community and the Maize Police Department. I am excited to be a part of this growth and serving as your Chief of Police.
