Message from the Chief
I consider it an honor and a privilege to hold this office. The citizens, police personnel and City Administration have my pledge to serve with integrity, diplomacy and responsiveness.
The police department and I will have a continuous improvement philosophy, while striving to create balance between our effectiveness and efficiency.
I believe in servant leadership. The higher one rises in rank the more of a servant one becomes and not the other way around.
We will keep our standards high. If we do not expect much from ourselves we will not inspire anything in anyone else.
Chief Rex L. Phelps
