MANDEVILLE — FBI Special Agent Todd Schliem has accepted the Mandeville police chief position, replacing Gerald Sticker who retired in June, sources familiar with the selection process and who preferred not to be identified in this Mandeville Daily exclusive have confirmed.

When contacted by phone this morning (July 13th), Schliem would neither confirm nor deny that he would be the next police chief, saying, “That may be a bit premature,” and that he would call Mandeville Daily back.

Since that call this morning, sources have confirmed that Schliem has accepted the post and an announcement is expected today (July 13th).

Schliem, 57, who has lived in Mandeville since 2007, has 22 years of experience as a special agent with the FBI, according to his LinkedIn profile and other public information sources.

According to sources, Schliem has experience as an investigative assistant with the 22nd Judicial District Attorney’s Office, as well as other relevant work experience.

On his LinkedIn profile, he includes the following licenses and certifications: Federally Certified Polygrapher, Certified Crisis Negotiator, and Certified SWAT Operator.

He lists the University or Wisconsin-Madison and University of Wisconsin Oshkosh as his educational experience, according to LinkedIn.

Mandeville Daily had previously opted not to publish the complete list of all seven applicants for police chief, out of an abundance of precaution and privacy concerns due to social media, even though such information is protected as “public” according to Louisiana Public Records Act § 44:1 et seq.
