Town Of Moraga

Appointment of Town Manager, Police Chief and Lieutenant

After serving eight months in the Interim position, Chief of Police Bob Priebe was appointed to Town Manager on September 28 by the Town Council with a unanimous vote. Bob officially ended his 38-year law enforcement career on September 30 to begin his new duties as Town Manager on October 1. Bob appointed Lieutenant Jon King as Chief of Police effective October 1 and Chief King promoted Sergeant Brian South to Lieutenant effective October 2. Bob leaves the Moraga Police Department (MPD) as the last original member hired on December 17, 1979 with almost 37 years of service and sent a letter of thanks to the community on his very emotional last day as Chief. Jon has served MPD as Lieutenant for almost two years, after a 29-year career at East Bay Regional Park District Police Department, and Sergeant Brian South grew up in Moraga, graduated from Campolindo High School and has been a member of MPD for over 14 years.
