Hogansville police chief Moses Ector will be leaving the police department March 1. Hogansville police chief Moses Ector will be leaving the police department March 1.
Beloved Hogansville native and police chief of six years, Moses Ector, will be leaving the city in May to take over his self-named law enforcement leadership academy at Atlanta Metropolitan State College.
"It was a very difficult decision because of the fact that this is my hometown and I care so much about the people and people I work with. It's like I'm leaving my family," said Ector.
The Hogansville Police Department gained its accreditation last year, something Ector said he is most proud of.
"He volunteered to come out of retirement to help the City and police department with problems we were having," said Mayor William Stankiewicz, who was city manager at the time and took part in the hiring of Ector.
Prior to his time at the HPD, Ector had worked for and retired from the Georgia Bureau of Investigations after 29 years, where he became the first agent to work an undercover operation in another country. He had worked at the Dekalb County Police Department for almost eight years after. He has been to several countries, including Israel and Botswana, as a law enforcement leader.
"For someone to have all the experience that he does and bring that leadership back to Hogansville and to the community has been great," said City Manager James Woods, who said he formed an "instantaneous bond" with Ector, upon meeting him two years ago. "Not having any problems with the police department has been wonderful, with the city having to worry about other departments."
Ector's goal for the police department to become community focused has brought many changes to the city. Officers now become more interactive with local stores and business through daily visits, something Ector said he enjoys.
"I think this is a very important part of the community and you can't be a police chief and not interact with the people," he said. "This is one of the best parts I like about the job, the friendships and talking. We get to hear the problems and complaints first hand. If people don't know you and you don't know them there's nothing you can do for them."
Events hosted by the police department under Ector is something that the community looked forward to, said Chief's Administrative Assistant Michelle Toth.
"I couldn't fathom somewhere like the Dekalb (County) police doing something like that," said Pearson, who met Ector 25 years ago when Pearson worked for the Dekalb County Police Department.
"If we would have had the Elderly Program, some officer would've checked on her and known she was sick," Ector said.
"They would come up here with a problem and I would offer to help them, but they would say 'No, I want "Mose,"' Pearson said many people nicknamed Ector.
"The Christmas fruit baskets and vegetable garden (whose products are delivered to seniors throughout the year) we give them have been the most rewarding thing," Ector said. "To be a police chief, you've got to care about the people that you serve."
Ector has frequently extended help to others in need.
"I was sitting in his office with him when a group of people had called Moses and said a woman did not have heat, and it was going to be a really cold night," Pearson said.
"Me and Moses drove to Grantville and bought the woman a heater with our own money, so she could have heat that night. He taught me that you have to have that kind of commitment to them because that's the kind of leadership that was offered."
Ector said these acts are a necessity for him.
"I can't go to bed at night knowing someone else needs something that I can assure it with. And I refuse to do that," he said.
Ector leaving the police department has been hard news for many.
"Ector has been one of the greatest law enforcement executives in the country and the country will be affected as well.
"How do you follow behind Moses Ector as chief of police? he said. "The expectations are so high. If you're going to follow Moses Ector you better bring your 'A-game."'

Law enforcement program named for Chief Ector
An Atlanta college has renamed its law enforcement program after Hogansville Police Chief Moses Ector.
"He (Ector) has had a productive career in law enforcement with the GBI, Dekalb Police Department, a professor at AMSC for 20 years and now chief of police for Hogansville," said Sheila Tenney, director of media relations for AMSC.
"It is indeed an honor for us to name the program after Chief Ector."
Ector graduated from AMSC, then Atlanta Junior College, in 1979 with an associate degree in criminal justice. He said he then made the commitment to himself to teach criminal justice after he obtained his master's degree. He obtained his master's degree from Troy University and began teaching at the AMSC. Over time, he and McGaha concocted a plan to start a law enforcement leadership program.
"I thought it was a good idea that we should do all we could to educate law enforcement supervisors," said Ector.
Ector will be teaching homeland security in the next round of classes to begin this month.
"An education plays an important role in law enforcement and we're hoping this program will make law enforcement more professional," he said.
