Chief’s Message

As the Chief of the Chatham Police department, I want to welcome you to our website.  I am honored to be your Chief of Police.  I am proud to be given the opportunity to serve this world-famous seaside community, and lead an agency of dedicated professionals, who recognize their calling and perform their duties with pride.

Our department is made up of caring and courageous professionals that are committed to treating all with dignity and respect, and I am fortunate to serve alongside with them.  Our staff enjoys strong support from our community, Town Management, and elected officials.  It is because of this support, that your police department can make Chatham a safe and desirable place to work, live and visit.

It is our desire to include you as one of our many partners in making Chatham better.  Your feedback and suggestions are always welcome and encouraged, to improve this site, and our agency.

Thank you for your interest in the Chatham Police Department.  We look forward to serving with you.
