The City of Splendora Police Department would like to congratulate Chief of Police, Wally H. Wieghat, Captain Alex Hadrych, and Lieutenant Troy Teller on earning the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association Trilogy Award.
The mission of FBI LEEDA is to advance the science and art of law enforcement leadership and promote the exchange of information to improve law enforcement management practice, through training, education, and networking among police professionals across the United States and beyond. Chief Wieghat, a graduate of the prestigious Federal Bureau Investigation’s National Academy 128th Session, has dedicated his life to professional leadership through advanced training. Wieghat has mandated that his staff receive the highest level of training to serve the public and the citizens of Splendora. His guidance and quest to build the Splendora Police Department, with the most highly trained and dedicated officers to serve the citizens of Splendora, has been a lifelong dream since he has lived in the community most of his life. Chief Wieghat states he loves the citizens and has always cherished the term “Public Servant,” and his heart is in “Community Based Policing,” a term meaning the police and the citizens working together with law enforcement to provide a quality of life that is safe and prosperous for our children and citizens to raise their families in. Chief Wieghat takes a personal interest, as do all of his officers, in every violation of law that occurs in our city, working tirelessly to solve every crime no matter how small.
Chief Wieghat reviews and interviews ‘personally’ every officer before their hire. He explains to the officer how important it is to solve each and every crime that a citizen suffers, and to deal with the citizen as if they were dealing with one of their family members. Whatever time is needed to clear the offense and bring the perpetrator to justice for any crime committed in our city is allocated to the officer. This sends a message to the family that nothing is more important than clearing the complaints’ case, and to the suspect that the Splendora Police Department will not rest until they are arrested and brought to justice for the crime they committed.
