Dan Lynch

Chief of Police, Kearney Police Department
“Be ready to be Surprised”

Dan Lynch is a no-nonsense guy (see his questionnaire responses below), and he looks, sounds, and IS tough, but put him on the dance floor, and you’ll see a whole different Chief. Look for elegant and suave. Behind his gruff exterior is a heart of gold, and as a lifelong law enforcement officer, we know this guy is adventurous – indeed fearless. Good combination in a competition like this, along with some skill. Lynch has been with Police Department for 40 years in Kearney, where he and wife Barb have been at home since 1975.

Why are you participating in KDWTS: “I could say ‘blackmail,’ but I’ll say ‘dogged pursuit and perseverance’ from the planning team.”
