Welcome to the Second District

Greetings to all of the residents, community members and businesses in the Second District. I am excited to take on this new leadership role and I look forward to working with our public safety partners in 2D. Over the course of my 30-year career, I have received a tremendous amount of highly specialized training in a wide variety of districts and divisions.  I'm confident that the knowledge and experience I have gathered will help me serve 2D well and contribute to MPD's mission of providing the best service to the citizens of the District of Columbia. I look forward to working with the Second District community.
