My commitment to those who live, work, and visit Boulder County:

Crime Prevention – Anywhere/Anytime
Assurance – Of helpful Public Safety Response
Recognition – Of Victims and their Rights
SEnsibility – Let’s make common sense common again. (G.K. Chesterton)
Serve as a Volunteer with the Chief Hayes’ Project through Ascent Church in Louisville. Over the past few years, we have helped those in need with general clean up, painting, tree trimming, etc.


I have served many communities in law enforcement/public safety roles in Colorado for 42 years. I have protected communities in both the City of Louisville and in the City of Boulder, and served as a Patrol Officer, Detective, Sergeant, Commander, Deputy Chief and Chief of Police. I have established and maintained strong community relationships everywhere I have worked. Public safety begins with Respect, Transparency, Accountability and Communication. I am a proven professional who has what it takes to help keep Boulder County a safe place.


I lead by example, and I hold myself and others accountable to excellence. I have a proven record of principled, selfless dedication to the community, and would be humbled by your vote for Sheriff of Boulder County.

Quality of Life

I have dedicated my entire adult life to law enforcement and have extensive administrative and executive law enforcement experience. I am a servant leader who believes law enforcement is something done with the community, not to the community. I have a long-standing record of service to victims which are evidenced in part by my work with the Domestic Abuse Prevention Project, a 2011 Distinguished Service Award for Extraordinary Efforts on Behalf of Victims of Crimes from the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office, a 2003 Award of Special Recognition from Boulder County Safehouse, a 1997 Award of Special Recognition from Boulder County Safehouse, and a 1993 Distinguished Service Award from the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office. I have built a successful career providing exceptional public safety service to those who live, work, and visit Boulder County.
