Never doubt that a small group of dedicated people can change the world ... indeed it is the only thing that ever has". Margaret Mead

I am enthusiastic and humble to serve as the Chief for City of Cushing Police Department. Building and leading this department are responsibilities that I take very seriously.  Since becoming Chief, I have worked hard to draw some of the finest talent Oklahoma law enforcement has to offer.

Our police department is unique in that I am working hard to change the culture of our department. In order for our department to build towards a safer community, we must be more loyal to our future than our past. My leadership and I are building an organization designed to deliver extraordinary service utilizing the talents of extraordinary people who serve our stakeholders everyday. My department will focus on innovative and creative ways to police our community. "We've always done it that way" is no longer an acceptable part of our culture. I am working hard to create a department that empowers our employees for independent decision-making and proactive problem-solving.

Our community can be assured that we are going to work daily to foster a partnership, side-by-side, in which we can work cooperatively towards a safe, livable Cushing. In doing so, we are partnering together to improve the quality of life for our stakeholders and those who visit our community.
I am committed to leading a premiere law enforcement agency that is entrepreneurial, effective and serves proudly.  I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the Cushing Police Department.
