Getting to know Chief Ross:

I am a Bolivar Missouri native, where I graduated from High School in
1997.  I attended Army Basic Training and Military Police School at
Ft. Leonard Wood Missouri, where I graduated in July 2001.  After
completing Basic Training and Military Police School, I worked for
Greene County as a Correctional Officer from 2001-2004, during my time at Greene County, I was deployed on 2 tours in support of Operation, Enduring Freedom where I served 6 months in Guantanamo Bay Cuba at Camp X-Ray from January 2002-June 2002.  I served from July 2002-November 2002 at Fort Benning Georgia.  I served in Afghanistan from August 2003-May 2004 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  After returning to Missouri in May of 2004, I received my Missouri POST Certificate in September 2004.  I worked for Buffalo Missouri Police Department as a Patrol Officer from October 2004-February 2006.  I worked for Hollister Missouri Police Department as a Patrol Officer from May 2008-March 2011.  My family and I moved back to Bolivar in August 2012 and I was hired as a Reserve Officer by Pleasant Hope in December 2012.  I was sworn in as Chief of Police in Pleasant Hope, Missouri in January 2013.

I am very proud to serve the citizens of Pleasant Hope as their Police
