I am very honored and proud to be the Police Chief of the Emerson Police Department. Born and raised in this wonderful town, a graduate of the school system and a third-generation family member that has provided the highest standards of community service, I am determined to take on all challenges that comes with the position of Chief. My end goal is to develop followers into future leaders so that the Emerson community can always rely on their police department. It is my belief that there is an answer to every problem and that communication is paramount if we are going to make things better. We encourage all of our residents to reach out to us directly and allow our highly trained officers help make a difference in your lives. No problem is too small and together we have a responsibility to be part of the solution and not the problem. Working together toward a common vision of what is best for Emerson.
After more than 25 years of experience in Law enforcement, I have come to the realization that my success can be contributed to having good parents, good coaches and a competitive nature to want to be the best in all that I do. When hiring officers, it is our goal to find candidates that are honest, hard-working, respectful, disciplined and have great integrity. Someone that is mentally and physically strong, a good team player, embraces constructive criticism and is willing to put others before themselves. If you read our Mission Statement, you can best understand what we stand for and what our goals are for this department. I am proud of all the Officers and the service that they provide and truly believe that the Emerson Police Department is and will continue to be one of the best police departments around.
I maintain an open-door policy and will make myself available to assist you in any way possible. You can contact me via phone or email and I look forward to the challenges ahead and will continue to serve the Emerson Police Department and this community with distinction and pride.
