Retiring Joplin Police Chief Sloan Rowland honored


(From the Joplin Police Department)

Today we were privileged to honor Joplin Police Chief Sloan Rowland as he closes this chapter on his law enforcement career. 

Chief Rowland will be retiring from the City of Joplin on June 1st after serving 35 years in law enforcement, with the last 20 years being at the Joplin Police Department. 

Chief Rowland was celebrated for his leadership and devotion and received several gifts, proclamations, and symbols of appreciation, including recognitions from Mayor Doug Lawson, State Representative Lane Roberts, State Senator Jill Carter, U.S. Representative Eric Burlison, the Joplin Fraternal Order of Police, Deputy Director of Public Works Lynden Lawson, members of the JPD Command Staff, as well as several members of the Chiefs Advisory Committee and citizens of Joplin.
We want to thank Chief Rowland for his leadership, dedication, and service to the citizens of Joplin and to the men and women of the Joplin Police Department. We wish you the best, hope you enjoy your retirement, and pray protection over you and your family as you embark on this new journey.
