In today's society, choosing the appropriate policing strategy for our communities is no simple task. Increased violence against police officers, terrorism, school shootings, and illegal immigration are only a few of the things that have significantly altered the role of police. However, every strategy must adhere to a set of core values.

All the hard work on the budget has paid off! In a special meeting on June 13th, 2012, the council voted 5-2 in favor of the new city budget. I want you to know how the police department turned out on its budget.

When I first made the decision to begin a career in law enforcement, all I could think about was chasing down bad guys, helping those who couldn’t help themselves, and saving lives. Those things still provide me with the greatest joy of my job. I never imagined that I would be sitting at a desk reviewing spending forecasts, projected revenues, and assembling a budget.

It's been such a busy week! In the last couple of nights I've tried to get back and write up a great story, but I've been drawn away by a number of different things. Most of them being great conversations with fellow chiefs. I've been able to develop a great rapport with many chiefs across the state. I believe most of them have in excess of twenty years of law enforcement experience. This has allowed me the opportunity to learn a great deal outside of the classroom.

One of the great things about beginning a blog is that I get to write about practically anything I want. As long as it is relevant to my job and important to you. This week should be an interesting one. As required by state law, I am attending a course of instruction on the administration of a police department. Never mind that I have spent nearly five years on the administrative side of things already. I guess some joys are left to the chief and the chief alone.

Greetings one and all:
Since being appointed as your City Marshal/Chief of Police, I, along with all police department personnel, have been feverishly working toward getting our feet back on the ground. Many of you are well aware of the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the loss of multiple officers in our department. I appreciate your patience and kind words as I have taken charge and begun forging a path into the future.
