On behalf of the men and women of the Port Orchard Police Department, welcome and thank you for taking the time to learn about your police department. Our website continues to grow and I encourage you to visit often and familiarize yourself with our services. You should also find links to valuable resources and information that can keep you and your family safe and healthy.
As your new police chief, I would like to thank the city and its community members for a warm welcome. We have a strong and dedicated group of men and women in your department and I am honored to have been chosen to lead. My purpose, as your chief, is to build and maintain trust between the public and your officers, as well as manage risk in our evolving city. This takes constant communication and transparency and I hope each of you will seek to be involved.
As an organization, we’ve recently come together and identified our shared values of Service, Honor, and Integrity. These values are with us in every interaction and every decision. As professionals, we know they guide our path and give us a common purpose. For the members of our community, it is important to know that your peace officers are committed to doing the right thing, even when difficult, because of these three values.
Your police department is here to earn your trust every day; we’ll do that by providing top tier public service and a dedication to being integral members of the community. We are here to serve, listen, and respond to community concerns. I look forward to my service to Port Orchard. Please feel free to contact me by email or phone with suggestions or comments.
I can be reached at 360.876.1700 or by email at [email protected].
