David was born and raised in Porter County and grew up in Portage and has a lot of close Family living in Portage. That’s one of the reasons why he quit his DEA Special Agent job in Chicago, was help nourish the community that he loves and cherishes and to have more time with his family.

David believes that with his varied background he can bring to the Sheriff’s Office new and innovative solutions that will improve operations. He also believes that the Office should be non-political and politics should not have any effect on management. When he was a DEA Agent he learned how to “think outside the box” and come up with creative solutions.
David wants to work better with the local police agencies and have close relationships and also meetings where they combine their efforts and come up with unique problem solving ideas. Some of the ideas David has for the office is to create an inter-agency task force that creates cooperation and combines data findings that can pinpoint peak trends and changes in the local crime scene. These combined data points will allow the Sheriff’s department to look at specific areas that need more focus and attention. He wants to improve inter-agency cooperation with regular meetings and focus on improving local enforcement relationships overall.
David has a keen sense of community and believes that there are a lot of good people in Porter County that deserve to live in a safe county. He believes that Porter County is a great place to live and wants to keep it that way.
