I am honored to have been named commander of the Fifth Police District and I’m very excited to begin my work in this new position. Just before coming to the Fifth District, I was assigned to the Criminal Intelligence Division, where I oversaw the seven district detective units. During that time I had the opportunity to becoming familiar with the crime patterns in the Fifth District. I look forward to getting to know the community and collaborating with you to quickly address any concerns that may arise. I welcome community input and encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns.
William FitzGerald, Commander
