Message from the Chief
I am honored to begin 2020 serving as Campbell’s 9th Police Chief alongside the highly motivated and hardworking members of the Campbell Police Department. Since I began my career in Campbell as a Police Explorer at 16 years old, I have been surrounded by amazing individuals who have helped shape our department. We have a dedicated group of sworn officers and civilian employees who work together to ensure the City of Campbell is a safe and enjoyable place for our community.
I am proud of the success and outstanding reputation our department has achieved throughout the years. We set high standards for ourselves and pledge excellence and integrity in all we do. We believe in, and support, diversity, equity, and impartiality by following our Core Principles of Policing: Service, Justice, and Fundamental Fairness. Because of this, we have always put an emphasis on building strong partnerships with our community and fostering an environment of collaboration and respect.
In recent years, our department has placed a focus on innovation and creativity. The progressive ways we interact with our community and how we address issues that impact Campbell demonstrates this new approach. Recognizing the importance of communicating practical and timely information, we are constantly looking for ways to engage those we serve. I am proud of our outside-the-box approaches to policing and intend to continue using technology to better serve our community.
Campbell is rich with history and the members of the Campbell Police Department, past and present, are proud to be a part of it. Safeguarding our community is a meaningful and purposeful mission for all of us at the police department. We recognize the significance of the trust placed in us and are committed to providing exceptional service.
