About Us

Chief's Message
We are very proud of our agency and hope that as you navigate our site you will discover why. We are a growing, progressive agency in a dynamic, signature city. We are fortunate to have a very supportive citizen base, state-of-the-art equipment and vehicles, training that is second-to-none and the ability to work in one of the most beautiful places in South Florida. Perhaps our most valuable resource is our employees. The family that is the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department really sets us apart from the rest. The spirit, enthusiasm and pride of our employees are what we believe creates great results.

We enjoy a wonderful partnership with our residents, business owners and other city departments. This dynamic helps in our community-oriented policing philosophy as we not only consider ourselves part of the community, but we consider the community part of us. We have a tremendous volunteer force and interact with citizens in a variety of innovative and proactive ways. We are pleased and proud that you have chosen to visit us and hope you will enjoy learning about one of the premier law enforcement agencies in the country – the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department.
