Effective June 1, 2015, Messer is promoted to the rank of Colonel and assumes the position of Chief.

"I am extremely pleased to have Brian as our Chief of Police." Mayor Stoeber said. "He has an exceptional background with the Cold Spring Police Department, and to promote from within is a testament to the quality of our department and individual officer effort. As our residents know, our City faces many challenges due to our growth over the years as well as the current heroin epidemic. I am confident Brian possesses the qualities and skills required not only for issues facing us today, but also for the development of a strong vision for our community's future needs. His experience includes expertise in tactical SWAT leadership via participation in the Northern Kentucky Special Operations Group, Commander for the Campbell County Major Accident Response Team, and years of local resident and business relations."

Stoeber added: "I would like to thank the eight members of the police search committee for their time, effort and enthusiasm in the Police Chief search process. Their involvement and care for their community clearly defined the requirements needed for a Police Chief to be successful in our community and has resulted in an excellent hire."

Messer began his police career with the City of Walton, then transferred to the City of Park Hills, and has served the residents of Cold Spring for the last sixteen years. He was promoted to Sergeant in 2007. In addition to his SWAT and Major Accident Response experience, he is the department's firearms instructor and a Field Training officer for the City's police recruits.

Citizen Satisfaction Survey Results

In May of 2009 the Cold Spring Police Department developed a citizen satisfaction survey to gauge just how well the citizens felt about safety in the city and the satisfaction with the department, its personnel, and services. The survey was sent out that year to establish a baseline for use in future years. The survey was sent out again in 2011 to compare the results. The results of both surveys are posted for comparison.
