Changing of the Guard - ILEA Appoints New Chair of the Advisory Board

ILEA is proud to announce that Doug Kowalski is the new Chair of the ILEA Advisory Board effective December 4, 2019.

Chief Kowalski follows Greg Rushin, Deputy City Manager, City of Plano, TX, who served on ILEA’s Advisory Board for many years and as Chair from November 16, 2018 to December 3, 2019.

Chief Kowalski currently serves as Chief of the Prosper, TX Police Department. He graduated from ILEA’s School of Police Supervision, 23rd Command and Management College (now known as the School of Executive Leadership), and the 10th Advanced Management College.

In addition, he received ILEA’s Gary W. Sykes Award for Professional Achievement in Law Enforcement in 2015. Chief Kowalski was nominated for the award by the McKinney Police Department, where he served as Chief prior to joining the Prosper Police Department.

Chief Kowalski has been a long-time supporter of ILEA and a member of the Advisory Board since 2011. We welcome his guidance in this new position and are appreciative of Greg Rushin’s leadership throughout the years and wish him the very best.
