Cape Coral Conversations: Chief of Police Dave Newlan

The recent promotion of Dave Newlan to Cape Coral Chief of Police is a true story of homegrown talent rising to the highest level.

Newlan grew up in Cape Coral graduating Cape Coral High School in 1985.

In the early 1990's trying to figure out the next step in his life, Newlan joined a friend, who was a police officer for a ride along. Immediately "bitten by the bug" Newlan soon found himself as a member of the Cape Coal Police beginning a 25-year career all under the Cape Coral Police banner.
