Welcome to the Fifth District

I am very excited to serve as commander of the Fifth Police District. Having served as an inspector in the Fifth District before this post, I’m already familiar with many of its neighborhoods and our local community partners. I look forward to continuing my work in 5D supporting our members and building stronger community partnerships in an effort to make our community safer.
