On our website you will find news and information, alerts, special events, crime statistics, and more. Our website offers an opportunity to report crime online, file code enforcement complaints, and address traffic issues or concerns. Our social networking not only allows those interested to follow us on social media, but also provides a two-way communication to ensure we are responsive to our community’s needs.
We are a unique department that fosters independent decision making and proactive problem solving amongst our employees. CHPD personnel are individuals captivated by our mission who bring enthusiasm, innovation, self-motivation, and passion to our city. “We’ve always done it that way” is not, and never will be, part of our culture.
CHPD focuses on innovative and creative ways to police our city. Utilizing a ‘community-oriented’ policing philosophy, this department relies upon the strong, positive partnership that has developed between law enforcement and our citizens. This collaboration greatly enhances the protection and overall safety of our entire community. I am committed to leading a premiere police agency that is entrepreneurial, effective, and serves proudly. Here at CHPD, it's all about character!
