NRO Dustin Chase
Hello, my name is Dustin Chase and I currently serve as one of the two Neighborhood Resource Officers for the Lawrence Police Department.
I am from the Lawrence area and graduated from the University of Kansas in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, English, and International Studies. In 2010 I received my Master of Business Administration degree from Baker University. I also enjoy languages and have studied Spanish and Russian. Martial arts have been a large part of my life for 20+ years and for many years I have had the pleasure of helping teach the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Tae Kwon Do class and the University of Kansas Tae Kwon Do Club. I also enjoy acting on stage and film and have starred in several commercials and independent films.
I joined the Lawrence Police Department in 2003, where I was initially assigned to the Patrol Division. From 2007 to 2009 I was assigned to the Crime Analysis Unit. I was assigned as a Neighborhood Resource Officer in May 2011. I look forward to all of the opportunities and challenges that this position offers. I enjoy working with citizens, students, businesses, neighborhood groups, and civic groups in proactive efforts to improve the safety and quality of life of everyone in Lawrence.
