FREMONT – The driveway leading up to the Fremont Police Department will soon honor former police Chief Craig Steckler. The Fremont City Council voted to install a special plaque at the entrance to the station in homage to the 78-year-old, who served on the department for nearly three decades. Steckler retired in 2012 after 45 years in law enforcement, 26 of them in Fremont. The Santa Ana native joined the city's police department in 1986 and was appointed to the role of chief in 1992. During his tenure, he created several volunteer programs, redesigned the department's website and introduced the alert service Nixle to the community.
