As the 14th Chief of Police of Kingsport, Tennessee, and on behalf of the dedicated men and women of our police department, I welcome you to this website.
It is my great privilege and honor to lead the professional staff of the Kingsport Police Department. This department has been providing professional police services since 1917. Each and every employee is dedicated to being the best we can be and making Kingsport “The Community of Choice.”
I believe that the very best policing takes place when an entire community works as a united team to meet and overcome challenges. We recognize and truly appreciate the ongoing contributions citizens make toward creating a “community climate” which fosters great policing.
It is our continued pleasure to deliver superior police services by utilizing cutting edge law enforcement strategies and technologies while maintaining a personal touch in police service found only within close knit communities.
