Chief's Message

On Behalf of the North Plains Police Department, I would like to welcome you to the North Plains Police Department’s website.

I am devoted to serving the city of North Plains and providing leadership to the men and women of this Department who are both compassionate and dedicated in their desire to serve their community.

North Plains is a city rich in both history and diversity and has a tremendous sense of community and pride. My commitment is to provide safety as well as excellent service and accountability. Our department is deeply committed to the philosophy of community policing and partnerships with the citizens of North Plains. I wish to thank our citizens for their ongoing support of the members of our Department. Our pledge to you is to provide fair and ethical policing and work side by side with our community partners to enhance the quality of life of our residents.

I am a firm believer in surrounding oneself with exemplary people, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to watch, listen and learn from many dedicated community servants, such as council members, the city manager, city department heads, city employees, and members of the North Plains Police Department. Each day I will work hard to follow their good examples and lead your police department in a professional, responsible, and progressive direction.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the North Plains Police Department, contact me via email or at 503-647-2604
