A Message from the Chief

It is an honor to be the City of Longview Chief of Police. I am fortunate to work with individuals who are dedicated to the mission of the department. Our employees are committed to our core values of Integritywithout compromise, Courage, in adversity, Teamwork, above self and Service, above all. These core values will drive our actions going forward.

We thank the community for the continuous support and we will strive to continue to maintain and build public trust. We will work collaboratively with all of our community partners to help make Longview a safe place to live, work, play and visit.

It is important that we continue to evolve as a law enforcement agency and implement best practices for 21st Century Policing.
