Welcome Chief Thomas W. Finn
I, Thomas W. Finn, do solemnly swear, that I will support, protect and defend the Constitution and the Government of the United States, and the Constitution and Government of the State of Nevada, against all enemies, whether domestic or foreign, and that I will bear true faith, allegiance and loyalty to the same, any ordinance, resolution or law of any state notwithstanding, and that I will well and faithfully perform all the duties of Police Chief of which I am about to enter, so help me God.

Chief Finn, as part of his Official Oath of Office, recently spoke these words in a small ceremony swearing him in as our new Chief of Police.

Chief Finn hails from East Brunswick New Jersey where he served the community in all capacities ranging from patrol officer to their Director of Public Safety, Deputy Chief of Police during his 25 year tenure with that agency; ultimately retiring in 2005. Serving as the East Brunswick’s Director of Public Safety, he directed the administration and supervision of their police, fire and emergency medical services.

He earned his Bachelor’s of Science – Criminal Justice degree from Rutgers University in 1983 and earned his Masters of Public Administration from Rutgers University in 1993. Chief Finn was an adjunct professor at Rutgers University until March 2006. The Chief, in addition to the aforementioned educational accom-plishments, graduated from the F.B.I. National Academy in 1996.

Chief Finn has a proven track record of being vigilant in his duties as the chief law enforcement officer as he progressed through the ranks focusing efforts on training and coaching his employees to achieve their desired goals and full potential. While at East Brunswick, he developed an educational component into the promotional process. Officers with college degrees doubled during his tenure as Director of Public Safety to 60 officers having a Bachelor’s degree and 14 having Master’s Degrees.
