He joined the department in September 1989, was promoted to corporal in 1999, lieutenant in 2003, and was named captain of the criminal investigation unit in 2006.

Dalsing was one of the original officers assigned to Dubuque's community-oriented policing (COP) unit.

Dalsing was selected over four other candidates.  They are Craig Berte of Cedar Falls, Todd Miller of Terrell, Texas, Michael Tupper from Nevada, Iowa and Michael Venema from Davenport.

Dubuque Police Chief Kim Wadding retired on June 20, 2009 which lead to the national search for his replacement.
