TO PROTECT AND SERVE

                           Mission Statement:

We will be professional at all times in our appearance, action, skill and knowledge.  We will focus our attention on each person in Tega Cay that needs our service.  We cannot control what we face, but we can control what we provide:  PROTECTION & SERVICE

Welcome to the website of the City of Tega Cay Police Department.

As Chief of Police it is my privilege and honor to serve the Citizens of Tega Cay.  I am committed to providing the highest level of service and protection.  As our mission statement says, it is important to me that each Citizen receives the service and attention that they need, when they need it. 

My philosophy for the Department, since I became Chief in 1998, is a philosophy that emphasizes a balance of professionalism, enforcement, education and positive public relations.  My continued pursuit of community oriented policing will help to improve daily relationships with the Citizens of Tega Cay, and hopefully this website will assist in that endeavor.  Above all else, the problems and concerns of our Citizens are my priority and that of my staff.  I want everyone to know that my door is always open, and if there is a problem or concern, please feel free to stop in and talk to me about it.  I am here to help.

The Department's goals, missions and services can not be completely efficient without the support and understanding of you, the Citizens of the community.  I ask for your continued support of the Tega Cay Police Department.

Please enjoy our website and return frequently to view our updated files on topics of criminal justice and community interest.
