The decision comes after the City Council directed Oller and the City Attorney to negotiate a separation agreement with former Police Chief Michael Jez.
The City Council is to vote on the appointment at the December 13 City Council Meeting. “I have faith that Doug Wologo has what it takes to move the department forward and build solid relationships and partnerships with the community,” said Oller. “I have great appreciation for the work our police officers do, and great faith that the League City Police Department will continue to pursue and deliver on our goal of world-class customer service.”
Wologo has served as a League City Police Officer since 1990. He was promoted to the rank of Captain in 2002. He graduated from the FBI National Academy for Law Enforcement in 2007. Captain Wologo's experience includes every segment of the Department’s operation including Motorcycle Officer, SWAT Member, and Marine Division Member. Captain Douglas Wologo holds a TCLEOSE Instructor license and is certified as an Advanced Accident Reconstructionist, Firearms Instructor, and System Administrator for the department computer system. Prior to his new assignment Wologo served as the Commander of the Administrative Bureau Division.
“I welcome the opportunity to lead the professional, talented and forward-thinking men and women of the League City Police Department during this transition period,” said Acting Police Chief Doug Wologo.
Oller said he has asked the City’s Human Resources staff to begin preparations for posting the open chief’s position. During Wologo’s tenure as acting chief, Assistant Chief of Police Gary Ratliff is to remain in his current role, Oller said.
