Welcome to the First District

I am very excited to be taking over the post as Commander of the First District. During my 26-year career with the Metropolitan Police Department, I have held a variety of assignments throughout this city. Before coming to the First District, I was Commander of the Recruiting Division, working with future members of the department. I look forward to seeing some of these fine men and women on patrol in the First District. Even more, I look forward to working with the First District community to address public safety concerns and continue to reduce crime in every neighborhood.
