Captain David Pauluhn
The Support Division is the second largest Division of the Police Department. The Director of Support Services is Capt. David Pauluhn, an agency member for over twenty years and a graduate of the FBI National Academy.
The Facility Maintenance staff of the police department have the responsibility for first-line maintenance of the police department buildings. The staff does an outstanding job caring for the 14,000 plus sq. feet of the main police building which is used around the clock. They also maintain the police department firing range and the western police sub station, located at 2500 Ashby Road, Building "D" (near Wild Acres Park).
Our Health & Rabies officer is far from being “just a dog catcher”. He is responsible for addressing numerous other situations that help insure the health and safety of the community. On any one day, he may address tall grass, improper trash storage, or rodent issues. This is in addition to rescuing over 200 stray animals from the street per year and bringing them to a safe location where their owners can find them. Our Health & Rabies officer, Tom Pupillo, is a Nationally Certified Animal Control Officer.
Captain Pauluhn also handles the procurement responsibility for the Police Department. Procurement consists of supplying all necessary items for the everyday Police operations. This includes the uniforms, specialized equipment and supplies for maintaining the 24 hour operations of the Police Department. This duty also includes overseeing the maintenance of the police vehicle fleet, providing all office and maintenance supplies, and providing food and supplies for the confined “guests” in our holding facility.
