Douglas M. Ball To Be Sworn In As New Maitland Police Chief
 
MAITLAND, FLORIDA (June 1, 2009) – On June 3, Maitland City Manager Jim Williams will swear in Douglas M. Ball as the new Maitland Police Chief. Ball will be sworn into office during a public ceremony at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 3, at the Home Builders Association Building, located at 544 Mayo Avenue.
 
Ball comes to Maitland from the Winter Park Police Department, where he has served as Chief of Police since 1996. Working his way through the ranks, Ball began with Winter Park in 1976 as a Uniform Patrolman.
