Stories From the Fire
There are many stories to tell from the morning of October 9. Tales of tragedy and heroism, lives lost and many more lives saved. I can tell you that working in the City’s emergency operations center to evacuate residents that night was the scariest night of my career. I was in no danger there, but […]

To Admit to Failure is to Admit to Humanity
Failure is a masterful teacher. I hope I am a leader that encourages new ideas. I really try to be. I fully understand that sometimes thinking outside of the box is risky. You will fail at times. Sometimes that’s a good thing and we learn. I’ve failed many times. I have learned a little each […]

What Does The Flag Mean To Me
Freedom, Honor, Pride, Sacrifice, Love of Country……. For many, the flag stirs up many memories, memorials, feelings and emotions. The flag means different things to different people – in different walks of life. I was asked to speak last week at the Field of Flags Ceremony in Mantorville. The topic – “What does the flag […]

School Bus Safety
For years, we have reminded drivers through various communication channels, most recently via Twitter, to pay attention at bus stops and when approaching a school bus with its red lights on and stop sign out. The depiction to the left gives great guidance when approaching stopped buses. In a nutshell, you must stop in these […]

Police committed to understanding community needs
Policing in America in the 21st century can be challenging for both police officers and citizens alike. In South Fayette Township, residents come from a multitude of backgrounds, environments and cultures that we as law enforcement officers must be aware of and sensitive to. Similarly, it is helpful for the public to be aware of […]

Media Crosshairs and Wars of Words
I made a mistake in affixing a complaint about a journalist to a singular incident. Because of this error, the message was lost in translation and was interpreted as an attack on journalists who file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. The latter is not the case, and I believe that my transparency on behalf […]

Hot Cops
Having had the pleasure writing and administering a fairly successful Facebook page sometimes brings me to read between 10 and 100 messages a day. I try to answer them all, at least with that little blue thumb that indicates to the sender that the message has been read. Over the last week, I have been […]

No Absolutes in Law Enforcement
Recently, a Roseville Police Department policy was the subject of conversation at a meeting, but I was not afforded the opportunity to explain the wording of a certain sentence in our manual. I decided to address it in this week’s “One Chief’s Perspective.” One of the benefits of being a law enforcement officer is the […]
