Plainfield names new chief of police

PLAINFIELD — The Plainfield Police Department is looking for a smooth transition as it goes through some changes that will result in familiar faces with some new titles.

The Plainfield Police Commission this week recommended Capt. Darel Krieger to fill the open chief of police position; the town council accepted the recommendation and named Krieger to succeed Chief Jeff Mitny.

Commissioner Jack Burlison attended the council meeting Monday to voice the body's recommendation.

"I've been a member of the police commission for 45 years," Burlison said. "We interviewed nine applicants and based on those interviews would like to recommend Capt. Darel Krieger as the new police chief.

"Capt. Krieger is a 30-year member of the Plainfield Police Department. He served for eight years as a patrol officer, 14 years as a captain, eight years as a captain supervisor, and 20 years as the recruiting manager. Capt. Krieger has interviewed every single member of the Plainfield Police Department."

Krieger started his law enforcement career as a patrol officer in Findlay, Ohio. He's received three bronze stars for his service in Plainfield.

He and his wife of 11 years, Betsy, are both members of the department. She works as an administrative secretary, helping the department with public relations. They met at Plainfield Christian Church and have raised six children.

"She has two grown boys and I have two grown boys and two grown daughters," Krieger said. "When we got married, we had four teen-agers at home - two boys and two girls."

Now as empty nesters, the couple works in close proximity.

"It hasn't been a problem at all," Krieger said. "We have separate offices across the hall. It's been fun. She was in public relations for a number of years so she does all the press releases and keeps me in line."
