I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. Due to the retirement of Chief James Jobe in November 2015, Mayor James Chmura and the Norridge Village Board appointed me as acting Chief of Police. In the 25 years that my family and I have called Norridge “home”, I have been actively involved in many community organizations, and have a vested interest in our Village. I would like to assure the residents, businesses and visitors of the Village that my officers and I are fully committed to maintaining the safety of our community with the highest quality of service that our department provides.
My leadership will be based on the principles of value, communication and accountability. Value, in terms of how well we provide service, what programs are working, can be improved upon, and what new programs the community would like us to develop and implement.
How my officers communicate is another principle on which I will base our department’s success. My officers will listen to, learn from, and assist our community on a daily basis.
Finally, we will be accountable to you and to each other to ensure we are doing our jobs professionally. My strong belief in integrity was an important aspect of being chosen to serve with the Norridge Police Department. I will hold myself and my officers to the highest ideals and standards.
Please feel free to contact either myself or my staff with any questions or issues that you might have. The Norridge Police Department’s non-emergency number is 708-453-4770.
