On February 16, 2015, Lucas “Chase” Porter was sworn in by Mayor Eileen Patton as the newest member of the Fairview Park Police Department. Chase is 27 years old with a four year old daughter. He comes to us from Portsmouth, Ohio.

After completing high school, Chase enlisted in the United States Navy and served from May of 2006 until January of 2012. He was a Navy “Seabee”, a member of the Naval Construction Battalion, and earned four medals during his naval career. After leaving the Navy with an honorable discharge, Chase joined a defense contractor where he served as a member of a protective detail stationed in Afghanistan for a year. He then changed careers and became certified in civilian Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD), working in that capacity in California before joining the ranks of our Police Department.

Chase made it through our exhaustive pre-employment screening process and we look forward to him providing many years of service to the citizens of Fairview Park.
