Chief of Police


I believe that in performing the business of law enforcement, and I do consider law enforcement more of a business than any other label you could attach to it, that it is very easy for officers to lose touch with the business’s true customers, the citizens.
Unfortunately we deal with the criminal element of our community far more than the decent, hard working people we serve. The Alliance Police Department is making every effort to get back to the business of knowing our customers so that they may be better served.
Recently we have instituted a safety booth at the Alliance Farmers Market on Saturday mornings where citizens can meet a police officer, view some of the equipment we use and carry, register bicycles and often times receive free safety items when available such as bike helmets for kids and gun locks.
We have also instituted free public training available to citizens who pre-register on a variety of topics that you, our customers, have deemed important. This training takes place at The Alliance Police Department monthly and typically lasts about an hour. I routinely meet with citizen groups to address neighborhood concerns and our administrative staff is also available to assist you or your group with your interests.
I hope you find this site helpful and informational as well. It is our absolute pleasure to serve and protect the public and citizenry of Alliance. It is through cooperative efforts with responsible citizens that we all work together to make Alliance a safe community.
                                                                               Thank You
