After seven years, Chief Police Officer Holger Reitz is returning to Siegen on business. On October 1, the 47-year-old from Siegen took over as head of the Traffic Directorate of the Siegen-Wittgenstein district police authority.

District administrator Andreas Müller, head of the district police authority, and senior police director Bernd Scholz, head of the police department, now officially welcomed police chief Reitz to the district headquarters. Both emphasized that with Holger Reitz, a manager of the higher service is coming to Siegen, who knows the authority as well as the region and the people living here well. Born in Siegen, after studying at the University of Applied Sciences for Public Administration in Cologne, he initially served ten years at the police headquarters in Düsseldorf. During this time, he held various managerial and staff positions there before, at his own request, he was transferred to his home office in Siegen-Wittgenstein for the first time in 2010. After taking on managerial and staff functions here as well, in 2014 he finally began training to advance to higher service. As part of this, he initially worked for several months in the Hagen criminal investigation department and in the Ministry of the Interior before finally completing his master's degree in "Police Management" in Münster. After completing his studies, Holger Reitz initially assumed the position of head of the management staff of the Olpe district police authority. In view of the nationwide possibility of employment associated with the degree, he was already happy at the time, since this employment led him back to South Westphalia. Now Holger Reitz is returning to his home authority Siegen-Wittgenstein at his own request.

In his new role, Police Chief Reitz will be in charge of the Traffic Directorate. In addition to a staff department, the directorate also includes the traffic commissariat at the Siegen, Kreuztal and Bad Berleburg locations as well as the traffic service with the task rates of traffic accident prevention/victim protection, the technical control group and the group for qualified combating of the main causes of accidents.

Regarding the new function, Holger Reitz explains: "I am very pleased to be able to return to my home authority after such a long time. It fills me with pride to be with the many dedicated colleagues in the Transport Directorate here in my home country to be able to make a contribution to road safety."
