More about me...

Chris began working at Lehigh University in 2001 in Patrol and worked in Investigations before his promotion to Assistant Chief. Before coming to Lehigh, Chris began his career in Coplay Borough then moved to the Slatington Police Department. During his time off, Chris enjoys the outdoors including hunting, fishing, woodworking and watching Penn State Football. 

Why I enjoy working at Lehigh..."I've been granted opportunities here I would never have gotten anywhere else. Lehigh allows me to make something my own and encourages finding new and innovative ways to get our jobs done."
