Town of Davie Appoints Dale Engle as Chief of Police


DAVIE, Fla. - At the April 17, 2019 Town Council Meeting, Town of Davie Town Administrator Richard J. Lemack announced the appointment of Dale Engle as Town of Davie’s Chief of Police for the Davie Police Department effective Thursday, April 18, 2019. Chief Engle was sworn in by Town of Davie Mayor Judy Paul.

Before his most recent appointment, Chief Engle served in the capacity of Acting Chief of Police for the Davie Police Department from January 18 to April 17, 2019. Before appointing the new Police Chief, Mr. Lemack met with both sworn and non-sworn police department personnel to discuss the future of the department. During the meetings, an immense support for Chief Engle was noted.

“Chief Engle has proven to be compassionate, trustworthy, knowledgeable of police operations and genuinely shows interest in others,” Mr. Lemack said. “He is receptive to ideas, approachable, friendly, motivational and has an uncanny ability as a decision maker among his other traits.”

Having served over 20 years with the Davie Police Department, Chief Engle’s years of service have afforded him the opportunity to work in all three Davie Police Department Bureaus: operations, investigations and administration. This has also provided him with a vast amount of experience in crisis management. Through his hard work, experience and exemplary work ethic, Chief Engle has advanced through the ranks at the Davie Police Department.

He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Nova Southeastern University and is slated to receive his Master of Science Degree in Executive Leadership from Liberty University.
