Springdale chief vows integrity
I want to thank the citizens of Springdale and their elected officers for the opportunity to serve as police chief in this wonderful community. I want to express my sincerest commitment in ensuring safety to all of our residents, business owners and visitors and firmly believe in a police partnership in tackling many of the issues that we will face.
I believe in open lines of communication, transparency, professionalism, ethical decision-making, consistency and fairness to all. I will demand the utmost professionalism from my officers in their service, while providing them with the highest and most up-to-date law enforcement standards available. I will seek to establish bonds and foster strong working relationships with our neighboring law enforcement and social service agencies in a continuing effort to provide a strong future for our children and to make Springdale a better place to live, work and visit.
I realize there has been some negative light shed upon the Springdale Borough Police Department lately due to the actions of a few. I will strive to restore faith in our department and encourage anyone with questions or concerns to call or stop by our office at 325 School St. to speak with me or one of my officers. My door will always be open.
I look forward to serving the citizens of the Springdale with respectful, cooperative and common-sense law enforcement. I will seek to keep the public informed on all matters affecting them and welcome public input. The Springdale Police Department will constantly strive to become a proactive police department that will make our citizens proud.
