Phone: 952-249-4700

I hold in high regard my commitment to the communities of Orono, Minnetonka Beach, Mound and Spring Park as well as to the members of this police department. It is an honor to serve.

Career with Orono Police Department (OPD)

I have been with the Orono Police Department since 1995. My career with OPD began as a college internship. I soon joined the police reserve program and after a few months, was hired as a community service officer, then as a police officer in 1996. In 2001, I was promoted to Sergeant, and since 2006, it has been my honor to serve the community as the Chief of Police.

Academic & Other Accomplishments

The academic accomplishments of my career were highlighted with a Master of Arts Degree from the University of St. Thomas and most recently, my graduation from the 240th session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

These accomplishments, and a vast number of other experiences during my career, have fully equipped me to perform my duties and provide quality service to the department and our communities.
