Welcome to Southeast Patrol Division!  I am extremely honored to be the Deputy Chief of this Division.  I believe that with teamwork, diligence and compassion all things are possible.  I am so thankful to be a part of this community and would like to thank our citizens for all that they do to contribute to our Division.  Because of your efforts in working with our officers, there has been a significant reduction in crime compared to the previous year. It is our sincere hope that it will continue to decrease in the months and years to come.  Let me be very candid in saying that without you, the citizens, none of this would be possible!  We are so thankful for all that you do to assist us. 

I would like to dedicate the SE Division page to all of our officers—past, present and future—as well as our citizens.  

Please continue to look to us for guidance; we will do whatever we can to assist you.  Thank you, again, to all of Southeast Divisions’ officers and citizens.

Welcome to Southeast Patrol Division!  I am thrilled to be assigned to Southeast!  I am a 24 year veteran of the Dallas Police Department and am excited to be engaged with a community who loves its police officers.  I am pleased to work with established community leaders and those who endeavor to make each and every neighborhood in the Southeast Division a vibrant and improving place to call home. 

I am committed to openness and transparency in policing and believe the way forward is in forging partnerships and working together with the citizens who grant us the authority to police the community. 

I've been fortunate to serve the department in a multitude of roles over the years and am pleased to get to bring my experience and knowledge.  I've been in Texas most of my life and in the Dallas area since 1985.  I am a graduate of the United States Naval Postgraduate School's Center for Homeland Defense and Security with a master's degree in Homeland Security Studies.  I am proud of the work the dedicated men and women of the Dallas Police Department do and especially that of the officers and civilians of the Southeast Patrol Division! Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
