Chief Tarasovic welcomes Deputy Chief of Administration
Alfred Durham to RPD

Deputy Chief of Administration, Major Alfred Durham

Deputy Chief Durham comes to us from the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC, where he retired as Assistant Chief on October 31, 2014, after 27 years of service. During his tenure, he served as the head of several departments and was most recently assigned as the Executive Officer in the Office of the Chief of Police.

In addition to his recent professional experience, Deputy Chief Durham previously served as Chief of Staff in the Richmond Police Department under Chief Rodney D. Monroe from 2005-2007. He was instrumental in our adoption of the Sector Policing concept that has provided significant impetus to our crime reduction and community policing efforts. Deputy Chief Durham is a graduate of the FBI National Academy; has an Associates’ degree in Corrections Administration from the University of the District of Columbia and served in the United States Marine Corps for seventeen years before his retirement in 1999.
