It is an absolute honor to serve as the second Chief of Police for the City of Menifee. As a person who has devoted most of his life to the law enforcement profession, words do not properly express the high level of excitement and dedication that I bring to protecting this fantastic community. For me, this is more than just a place to work, it is personal. I live in Menifee with my family, we are on the same streets, and frequent the same parks and shopping centers. It is with that perspective in mind that I will be policing Menifee not just as a Chief of Police, but as your neighbor. All of us, and our families, deserve to feel safe. My commitment to you is that the Menifee Police Department will always be a professional police department committed to protecting this community.
The Menifee Police Department was created to be a community-focused police department. This means that in addition to our traditional enforcement responsibilities, we will strive to find new ways to partner with the community, to be present at community events, and develop long-term strategies to make Menifee an even safer community. We will proactively address crime in our community, find ways to help those in need, and always uphold our oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
Finally, the level of professionalism and commitment displayed by every member of the police department is phenomenal. We are all here as a police department and as a community to work together to ensure that Menifee remains a safe community for all.
Thank you for all the support today and in the years to come.
Menifee Police Chief
Here is the Menifee Police Department’s Mission Statement and Values that we promise to live by:
"We deliver an experience where people feel unified, engaged, and safe.”
See one another-Know one another-Empower one another
Encourage and pursue original ideas
As we talked about these concepts, we always had an internal and external lens. We will apply this mission and these values internally toward each other, and externally, in how we treat all community members.
Thank you, Menifee, for allowing us to serve. We are honored.
