Message from our Chief

Welcome to the police department section of the City of Redlands' website. It is both an honor and privilege to serve the community of Redlands as its Chief of Police. I am immensely proud to lead a group of dedicated staff and volunteers who continually strive to provide the highest level of public safety services to a community that truly supports its police department.

The Department is keenly focused on working in partnership with all facets of the community to co-produce public safety. We strive to improve our service to the community by identifying and implementing best practices in policing, creatively utilizing technology, and through the professional development of staff. We are dedicated to bolstering the public's trust through accountability to high standards of performance, ethics, transparency, and professional conduct.

On behalf of the men and women of the Redlands Police Department, welcome to our website.   
We are dedicated to improving the quality of life through persistent problem-solving and working in partnership with our larger community. 

As a native Redlander, product of the Redlands Unified School District, and alumnus of the University of Redlands, I feel fortunate to be in a position to give back to the community and ensure Redlands continues be a safe and attractive city for people to raise their families.  As Assistant Chief of Police, responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Department, I value the concept of community policing and focus significant energy on making sure the Department fosters and promotes positive police/community relations.

Our website contains useful information that will provide you with knowledge of what is occurring in our community and how we can work together to ensure our neighborhoods and business districts remain safe places to live, work and play. 

Thank you for visiting the Redlands Police Department’s website, and I look forward to working with you to ensure Redlands remains a great city.
