Police Department

Welcome Message from the Chief

I am enthusiastic and humble to serve as the Chief for our municipal employee-based police department. Building and leading this department are responsibilities that I take very seriously. I have personally selected police professionals of the highest caliber to build a new police department. I am pleased to report that we have drawn some of the finest talent Michigan law enforcement has to offer.
Our police department is unique. We are building an organization designed to deliver extraordinary service utilizing the talents of extraordinary people. The Village of Dundee Police Department focuses on innovative and creative ways to police our community. "We've always done it that way" is not part of our culture. We are creating a department that empowers our employees for independent decision-making and proactive problem-solving. Our community can be assured that we are working in a partnership, side-by-side. Our employees are individuals who are enticed by our mission and bring high energy, innovation, self-motivation, and passion to our village.

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 Village of Dundee Police Department.
