Dear Citizens of Port Richey,

It is with great pride and sincere appreciation that I accepted the appointment as Interim Chief of Police by your City Manager Tom O’Neill.  I will utilize my 42 years of experience in law enforcement and government management to serve the community’s residents and visitors.

The support and assistance provided by the police officers and civilian employees with the department has made the leadership transition very orderly and professional.  The Mayor and City Council have also provided great support for me and the department during these recent weeks.

If anyone has any questions or comments about police operations within Port Richey, please do not hesitate to contact us at 727-816-1919.


James M. Gabbard
