Meet Chief Chief David Carpenter

Chief Chief David Carpenter

I am currently the Chief of Police in Daphne, Alabama. I began my law enforcement career in 1989 as a Patrol Officer with this agency. I was promoted to Corporal in 1993, Sergeant in 1996, Lieutenant in 1999, Captain in January 2003 and now hold the position of Police Chief.

I graduated from Fairhope High School in 1978 and received a B.A. degree from the University of Alabama in 1983. I attended the FBI National Academy from July 1 - September 7, 2001.

I have always believed in community oriented policing and my department will continue to practice this philosophy. We will continue to work with the law abiding citizens of Daphne in establishing solutions to problems and, thereby, enhance the quality of life in our community. I am dedicated to this police department and community and will strive to keep both running smoothly.
