There is no greater responsibility bestowed upon Government than the duty of protecting and serving its citizens. In Arizona, it is the Department of Public Safety (DPS) that finds itself at the forefront of this duty. This responsibility is not taken lightly.
For the past five years I have aligned the implementation of policies, programs, and professionalism with law enforcement best practices and the management philosophy of Governor Ducey. The results have merited national attention and are evidenced by integrity-based improvements within the agency.
These improvements are made possible by our dedicated Arizona state troopers and professional staff who take tremendous pride in the mission of the agency. Day in and day out, they prove their commitment to executing their duty through our Department motto, Courteous Vigilance.
Being trusted to lead this agency is one of the greatest honors of my life. The men and women of DPS are some of the finest police and professional staff in the entire country. It is my goal to continue to lead the Department of Public Safety into the future and provide the most professional law enforcement services in the nation to everyone who lives in or visits our state.
