Former IBM CEO John F. Akers once said, "Set your expectations high; find men and women whose integrity and values you respect; get their agreement on a course of action, and give them your ultimate trust." The Gahanna Division of Police strives to embody our City's core values of Professionalism, Pride, Integrity, Purpose-Driven, Enthusiasm, Respect, and Commitment. As Chief of Police, I am committed to embracing these core values by providing exceptional, leading-edge and transparent policing services to our community and its stakeholders.
