Welcome to the Fifth District

I am both humbled and honored to serve as Commander of the Fifth Police District. I look forward to learning the residential neighborhoods and business communities, and to meeting the community members who call the Fifth District their home. I am excited by the possibilities before me and I am hopeful that the community will come to trust me enough for us to have both the pleasant and the tough conversations that may lie ahead.

Those of you who have met me know I am a plain-spoken, honest person, who is always willing to listen and discuss important issues. For those of you who have not met me yet, I look forward to getting to know you and doing my best to serve the interests of all the citizens of the Fifth Police District.
