Earlier this year, Secretary Treasurer Rick Host announced to the Iowa State Police Association (ISPA) Board that he  was going to retire from his position following the ISPA Conference in 2018. Host served on the ISPA Board of Directors from 1989 through 1996 and has been our secretary treasurer since July 1998.

At our goals planning meeting, Dave McFarland, Josh Bell, Host and I were placed on a search committee to find a new secretary treasurer. We took applications for the position and in June interviewed three candidates. At our July board meeting, the search committee recommended ISPA hire Past President Ryan Goecke. This appointment was  approved by the board.

Goecke retired as a lieutenant from the Marshalltown Police Department in 2016. He served on the ISPA Board from  2008 to 2016. Goecke will start his job training with Host this fall in preparation for the conference in Davenport. More
