Chief's Mission Statement

As Chief of Police, it is a privilege and honor to serve the Lee community.  I am very proud of this community and all it offers.  Members of this Agency are dedicated to reducing crime and providing for the safety and welfare of our citizens and visitors alike. The Lee Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency committed to maintaining a safe and secure community through service, mutual cooperation and respect. Our goal is to deliver high quality efficient service while working in cooperation with local government, schools, community groups, businesses, and residents.  We are committed to this mission while keeping a strong focus on small-town community engagement. 

I have been fortunate to be part of this community for many years.  I graduated from our local High School, raised my own family here and have served with the Lee Police Department for over 24 years.  The members of this police department are a dedicated group of professionals and like me care a great deal for the community they serve.  They were chosen based on their strong ethics and a demonstrated desire to make a positive difference. We strive to maintain a positive connection with the population we serve and I welcome your comments on your interactions with agency staff.
