The Fort Dodge Police Dept. Issued a statement following the Friday morning passing of former Police Chief Kevin Doty.
It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that retired Chief of Police Kevin Doty passed away this morning. In his more than 30 years with the Fort Dodge Police Department, Chief Doty took great pride in serving the citizens of Fort Dodge. We will always remember him and be grateful for his generous and caring spirit in his work with the Department, out in the community, and in his personal relationships with each of us. Although he retired in December 2017 and moved away to be closer to his family, he remained in close touch with the us here at the Department and many others in the community. We are forever grateful for the mark he left on our department, on our community, and on our lives. Rest easy, Chief.
