Tim Garbo, who has almost 30 years of experience in law enforcement, has been named chief of the Dundee Police Department.
Garbo, 53, served as the school resource officer (SRO) for Dundee Community Schools as a member of the police department before being named chief.“It’s a new challenge and a new opportunity and I look forward to it,” he said. “I want to keep the department going in the same positive direction and with the same vision.““The Village of Dundee is looking forward to working with Chief Garbo,” said Village Manager David Uhl. “We are extremely fortunate to have someone with the experience, knowledge and professionalism that Chief Garbo brings to the Dundee Police Department.“Garbo served about 26 years with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office before retiring as a sergeant. He then joined the Milan Police Department where he was the school resource officer. He went to Dundee two years ago and worked in the schools until becoming chief.
A panel of three law enforcement officers, including Lt. Tony Cuevas, commander of the Monroe post of the Michigan State Police, interviewed several candidates before selecting Garbo. He will head the department that includes four full-time members and 12 part-time officers.
