Office of the Chief
My wife Sara and I have been lifelong residents of Doylestown and both graduated Chippewa High School, class of 1999. We have three little girls who have their dad wrapped around their little fingers.
I have served as a police officer for the Village with my partner Qoose since 2005. Qoose is a German Shepard that has been certified by the Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy as a special purpose narcotics and human tracking canine. Together, he and I have been involved in hundreds of drug arrests and convictions during our 10 years together. Qoose recently retired and is currently helping me keep an eye on my girls at home. I miss him at work but it puts me at ease knowing he is at home protecting my family.
In 2012, I was certified as a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) making me one of approximately 100 officers in the State of Ohio to hold this title. My credentials as a DRE allowed me to conduct 12 step evaluations on individuals suspected of driving under the influence of drugs other than alcohol. I use these skills to assist agencies all over the state of Ohio with drug impaired convictions. I am also certified by the Ohio Police Officer Training Academy as a Standardized Field Sobriety instructor (SFST) and to instruct the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement course (A.R.I.D.E). All in an attempt to combat impaired driving in our Village and surrounding communities.
I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to serve this community. My passion to protect and serve is unwavering. I am a proactive and committed Law Enforcement professional with over a decade of experiences across a breadth of opportunities. I feel the greatest strength of our police department is the genuine relationships our officers build with the members of this community. I consider it an honor to enrich and sustain the superior reputation of our police department and the safety and security within the community we call home.
I urge you to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns.
Chief of Police
