Message from the Chief:

On behalf of the Rochester Police Department, I welcome you to our website! It was designed to give our residents access to current crime trends, different programs and resources we can provide and information about the dedicated men and women that serve our community.

As the Chief of Police, I am truly honored to serve the Village of Rochester and work alongside our current staff and volunteers. We take pride in our officers being well-trained and professional. We will continue to serve all people with respect, fairness and compassion. We also are very proud of our Volunteers in Police Service members or “VIPS” program.

Over the years, we have been humbled by the support we have received from the residents of Rochester. We understand that having a strong partnership with our community is essential to ensuring the Village of Rochester continues to be a safe environment for all. We are firm believers in the community policing philosophy, and we will continue to explore ways to strengthen our partnership.

My family feels fortunate to call the Village of Rochester home. The Village has welcomed us with open arms and we are proud to be a part of this community. If you need to reach me, or just want to stop by, please do not hesitate to do so. My door is always open.
