I am excited to join the Ross Township Police as the new Chief. After graduating from Pittsburgh's academy in 2000, I worked my way through the ranks in various roles in patrol, investigations, and administration. I am a state-certified instructor and have served on committees developing statewide training for Pennsylvania police officers. As a member of Pittsburgh's Procedural Justice Unit, I helped develop and continue to deliver procedural justice and implicit bias training to both officers and members of the community. I graduated from the FBI National Academy and I completed a Master of Science in Law Enforcement & Public Safety Leadership from the University of San Diego in May 2022. Deputy Chief Brian Kohlhepp and I are beginning our tenure at an exciting time. Ross Police kicks off our second hundred years with plans for new hires and to promote new sergeants. We will be working with officers and our community to increase our ability to serve the Ross community with professionalism, dedication, and pride.
