Chief's Message

As a longtime resident of the city of Tehachapi, I am personally involved and engaged in the community.  I have a deep interest and understanding of community concerns and issues and I am a strong advocate of community policing.  I look forward to working with each of you.  Collectively, we can make Tehachapi even safer tomorrow than it is today.
