The Grey Forest Police Department is comprised of a full-time Police Chief, three full time officers, one shift officer and several reserve officers. All officers are fully licensed peace officers who are dedicated to serving the city through a devotion of valuable time and effort toward a common goal: creating a safer community.

Currently there are 12 officers within the department with a combined total of more than 200 years of work experience. Nine of the officers currently hold an advanced or master Peace Officer License. Their backgrounds range from former Chief of Police, Director of State & Federal Law Enforcement Academy, detective to commissioned firefighters with EMS, hazmat and arson investigation experience.

Retiring after 31 years of service, he started with the Grey Forest Police Department in February 2012 as a Reserve Officer. He was appointed Police Chief in July of 2013.
