Director of Public Safety /
Chief of Police
The Richfield Police Department was established in 1937 and has a proud and distinguished tradition of excellent community service for over 75 years. The mission of the Richfield Police Department is to safeguard the lives and property of the people we serve, to reduce the incidence and fear of crime, and to enhance public safety while working with the community to improve their quality of life.
I assure you that the men and women of Richfield Public Safety are committed to successfully accomplishing this mission with courage, integrity and hard work. I have been a member of this department since 1978 and have seen many changes; however, there has been one constant throughout our history: outstanding police officers. The men and women of the Richfield Police Department make it one of the finest police departments in the State of Minnesota. They are truly committed to this mission and dedicated to serving the citizens of Richfield.
It has been an honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Richfield for the past 34 years. I sincerely want to thank the City Council and the citizens of Richfield for this opportunity.
