Chief Galen Carroll


Modesto's new police chief offers first impression

Feb. 25, 2013

Dear MPOA Members and Supporters: 

Our new Police Chief Galen Carroll wrote in the Modesto Bee  Sunday about his first impressions on the job: "As the police chief, the easiest route to take would be to quietly work on the problems and not try to make waves. I refuse to do that. As a community, we need to get upset, get involved, stop being intimidated by cowards and work together to make this city live up to its potential."

I invite you to click on this link and read the entire article. Then share it with our friends, family and neighbors. It's important to have open lines of communication with our community as we work together to combat crime in Modesto.
