Thank you for your interest in the Department of Oregon State Police and our beautiful state. Oregon is known for its diverse regions of beaches, mountains, forests and high desert. Residents and visitors alike treasure Oregon’s abundance of recreational and scenic opportunities.
The men and women of the Oregon State Police cherish our role in our state’s public safety system, with the collaborative goals of enhancing livability, while protecting the people, property and natural resources of Oregon. The Oregon State Police is a full service law enforcement agency, rich in traditions of service, integrity, and professionalism.
I began my career with the Oregon State Police in the summer of 1990, beginning as a cadet and working my way through the ranks, to Major of Field Operations. I was honored to be appointed Superintendent of the OSP by Oregon Governor Kate Brown, on July 1, 2016. It is my pledge to maintain the Oregon State Police culture of professionalism, integrity, and collaboration, in service to Oregon’s citizens and visitors.
Thank you for browsing through the web pages of the Oregon State Police. We´re very excited about the opportunities that the internet allows us. These pages offer a glimpse into the various services we provide, and hopefully will create a better understanding of who we are. We do not intend this to be one-way communication, therefore it is our desire that you send us your comments and perhaps respond to surveys that our departments may have online.
