The Riley County Police Department is searching for a new Public Information Officer. I will be leaving the Riley County Police Department at the end of July to attend law school, a process that has been in the works since September 2016.

Working first as a patrol officer and then as the Public Information Officer has been an amazing experience. My greatest hope is that we are able to find someone to fill this position that has a great love both for the department and for the community it serves.
