Missouri’s New Medical Marijuana Law and KCPD
Earlier this month, Missouri voters approved Amendment 2, which legalized medical marijuana. I’ve heard many questions about how this will affect our enforcement activity. The short answer is: it won’t. Amendment 2 allows state-licensed physicians to recommend marijuana use to patients. Doctor-approved patients must obtain an identification card from the state indicating they are permitted […]

Thoughts and Lessons
I have been involved in public service more than half my life. Officially, 28 years on February 4th, 2019. It’s been a journey. I have learned a lot. I have learned many lessons of humility and patience. I have seen tragedy, violence, hate, fear, happiness, joy and sometimes something in between all that. You cannot […]

The Meeting
I get a text that starts something like this. “Hey, would you do me a favor . . . ” The conversation continues and I’m asked if I would be willing to give this person their 1 year sobriety tag. I respond with “Of course, I’d be honored.” I’m given the location, date, and time […]

Government Alliance on Race and Equity: Project #1
Earlier this year, I wrote about the City of Roseville’s participation in the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE). The Police Department has been an active member of Roseville’s team and we directly helped facilitate city discussion on a current project. The Roseville City Council asked Public Works Director Marc Culver for a report […]

Campus Notifications: Confusion & Consternation
One of the most visible yet most misunderstood campus safety measures that UWPD facilitates is the issuance of timely warnings and emergency alerts. Required under the federal Clery Act, timely warnings and emergency alerts (we call themCrime Warnings and WiscAlerts on our campus) are intended to alert our campus community members when specific crimes have […]

Just Being There
The early onset of darkness over the greatest state in the nation puts me to bed earlier than I would like. There was that time in life where staying up late was, for some reason, an honor. Now it’s stupid. If I had just taken advantage of all those naps my mother said were good […]

Giving Our All to Get a Triple Murderer Into Custody ASAP
We have been working diligently to combat violent crime in our city. What happened on Sunday morning was the epitome of senseless violence: in the course of about an hour, one suspect killed three people in three different places and shot two more in South Kansas City and Raytown. A 4-year-old child was among the […]

Why Does Our Deputy Park and Sit During His Shift – Why Aren’t They Out Patrolling?
I’ve heard this question a few times this past month while visiting with area city councils about their law enforcement coverage. It’s a fair question . . . When I worked patrol I would make my rounds in whatever town I was working in, respond to calls, get information from citizens about problem neighborhoods or […]

Do What You Have to Do
For the past two years, I have been pursuing a second Master’s Degree from the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS). I pursued this degree so I could be a better chief for my department and become more educated on homeland security issues in order to keep our city safer. When […]
