I have known Chief Dams for 35 years. He a very intelligent, qualified, and dedicated to his job as Chief of Police at Greendale, Wi. Chief Dams is open-minded, loves people, strives relentlessly to help people who need and are deserving of help, making sure the law is upheld at all times, and bring to justice persons who have violated the law. Chief Dams has strived to make the Greendale Police Department be perhaps the best in the State, and one of the best in the country. Chief Dams is a Christian and stays strong with his faith in God. He is a person who never gives up. I consider Chief Dams to be a real friend, and it is my privilege to know him. My wife and I wish Chief Dams the very best in his retirement life soon to come. Sincerely, Jerry & Kathy Alton
