Open House For New Chadron Police Chief Rick Hickstein Today

The City of Chadron is inviting everyone to drop by City Hall today from 2:00-3:00 for an Open House celebrating Rick Hickstein’s selection as Chief of Police. Light refreshments will be served.

Hickstein came to Chadron in 1995 as a student at Chadron State College, then joined the police department in September 1999 after graduating.

He was promoted to sergeant in 2005 and as the department’s only lieutenant shortly after Tim Lordino became chief in 2007.

Hickstein was named interim chief when Lordino stepped down in February and was selected in April from among a pool of 11 applicants to be the permanent chief.

Hickstein and his wife Misty met while both were students at CSC, where their daughter is currently a student and standout member of the Lady Eagles’ golf team.
