About the Chief
I started my emergency service career in 1981 by working as a full-time firefighter for Reno County Fire District #2. I then became a reserve officer with the Reno County Sheriff’s Department in 1983.
In 1987 I was hired with the South Hutchinson Police Department as a road officer. I graduated from the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center in 1988 with the 101st Basic. I spent 13 years as a road officer and then was assigned as a detective for two years. Afterward, I was promoted to police chief in January 2002. In April 2002 the Police Department moved into a newly built Police Station.
