Village of Palatine Announces Police Chief Retirement and Appointment of New Police Chief

The Village of Palatine is pleased to announce the selection of David Daigle as the next Police Chief for the Village of Palatine.

Village Manager Reid Ottesen will appoint current Deputy Police Chief David Daigle to replace retiring Chief Alan Stoeckel as the next Chief of the Palatine Police Department. Stoeckel recently announced his retirement following 34 years of service to the Palatine community.

Ottesen said “Chief Stoeckel has not only served the community in an exemplary manner for 34 years but he has prepared the next generation of leadership for the department. There are many men and women of the department that are ready to assume new roles thanks in large part to the mentoring and positive environment under Chief Stoeckel’s leadership.”

Daigle has been a member of the Palatine Police Department since 1993. Prior to his appointment to Deputy Chief of Operations in 2014, Daigle served the Department in a variety of positions including Commander of Planning and Research, Patrol Commander, Detective Sergeant, Patrol Sergeant, Detective and Patrol Officer.

Chief Daigle is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, Southern Police Institute at University of Louisville, Southwest Law Enforcement Institute, and the Delinquency Control Institute at the University of Southern California. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Louisiana State University in Criminal Justice. He is also a graduate of Fremd High School. 

Daigle has also served the area as a Supervisor for the Major Case
Assistance Team Forensic Unit from 2001 – 2013. He presently serves as
Chairman of the Harper College Law Enforcement and Justice Advisory

“Deputy Chief Daigle has demonstrated his leadership, commitment and
integrity to law enforcement, the Palatine Police Department and the
Palatine Community for the past 26 years. He will be an outstanding leader
for our Police Department and continue in the tradition of his predecessors,
Chiefs Stoeckel, Koziol, McGregor and Bratcher. His passion for policing and
the Palatine Police Department made him an ideal choice for this position,”
said Reid Ottesen.

Mayor Schwantz said, “Chief Daigle’s commitment to law enforcement and
his integrity is second to none. He has a wealth of experience and will
continue to serve all our residents and businesses with passion and honor.”

Daigle said “I am humbled by this appointment. I have spent the majority
of my life serving the community and look forward to continuing the mission
of strengthening the partnerships within the Village of Palatine. It is my
honor to work alongside the dedicated men and women of our police
department whose commitment to public service is second to none.”

Stoeckel will retire on July 1st and Daigle will become Chief on July 2nd.

Click It or Ticket May 10-28

As summer kicks off and travel increases, the Palatine Police Department is partnering with the Illinois Department of Transportation to remind motorists to Click It or Ticket. The seat-belt enforcement campaign will take place May 10 through 28, concurrent with one of the busiest travel and holiday weekends of the year. Click It or Ticket enforces the proper use of seat-belts and car-seats to keep all motorist safe.

"Our officers see first hand the tragedy when people do not buckle up." said the Palatine Police. "It's such a simple and effective way to protect yourself while traveling. As the Memorial Day weekend approaches, we want to make sure people are doing everything they can to stay safe when traveling."

In Illinois, nearly 95% of motorists use seat belts, but a disproportionate number of fatalities still involve unbelted motorists and passengers. Seat belt use decreases even more for back seat passengers and for people traveling at night.

Palatine Police will be taking a no-excuses approach, writing citations day and night. Motorists and passengers not wearing their seat belt will be ticketed, and those caught driving impaired will be arrested.
“Please help us spread this life-saving message before one more friend or family member is killed simply because they failed to buckle up,” said the Palatine Police. “Seat belts save lives, and every vehicle occupant—front seat and back, child and adult—needs to remember to buckle up, every trip, every time.” For more information on the Click It or Ticket mobilization, visit
