Chief Shoemaker comes to us from the Jefferson City Police Department, in Missouri, where he served for the last 25 years.  As a Captain for Jefferson City, Chief Shoemaker was responsible for Detectives, Narcotics, Community Services, Traffic and Public Affairs. Chief Shoemaker served at the command level for the last 12 years in Jefferson City, four of which were as Operations Commander in charge of Patrol and SWAT.

Chief Shoemaker is also a Course Director/Adjunct Instructor for Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, where he delivers executive-level police courses throughout the United States.

Chief Shoemaker states, ”I am extremely honored to have been selected for the position of Chief of Police for the City of Grand Junction. The members of this agency have a tremendous amount of talent and compassion, along with a strong desire to serve and protect. I look forward to collaboratively working with all employees, both within GJPD and the City of Grand Junction, as well as members of our community to make Grand Junction a safe place to call home.”
