As your chief of police, I am honored to serve this community. I deeply appreciate the support and confidence that has been extended to me by the elected officials, the municipal management team, and residents of this city. My family and I are proud to call Texarkana, Texas our home.

Please join me in thanking your brave and dedicated police force for all they have done in the past, for their efforts now, and into the future. They truly deserve your support and confidence as they selflessly go about the challenges of protecting and serving our community.
