Chief of Police

Troutman Community,

Welcome to the website of the Troutman Police Department. I am honored to serve as the Chief of Police for this growing agency and our community. It is my pleasure to serve alongside the professional officers who make up this department whose service to others, dedication to duty, and sense of ownership in our community leads them to provide excellent service.


I believe that a relationship between the citizens and the officers that serve them is the foundation to build partnerships that bind all involved groups together in the common goal of ensuring an excellent quality of life within the Town of Troutman. If you are a resident, member of a community group or homeowners association, business owner, or simply have concerns regarding crime, quality of life, or law enforcement related issues in our community, I welcome you to call, email or come to the Police Department and speak with me. Only by sharing information with each other and keeping open lines of communication can we achieve our goal of a safe community together.
