Tim Garbo has been named chief of the Dundee Police Department. Chief Garbo fills the vacancy that was created with the unexpected death of Todd W. Opperman in December 2017 at age 42.
Before Garbo was selected, a panel of three law enforcement officers, including Lt. Tony Cuevas, commander of the Monroe post of the Michigan State Police, interviewed several candidates.
Garbo, 53, has almost 30 years of experience in law enforcement. He served as the school resource officer (SRO) for Dundee Community Schools as a member of the police department before being named chief. “It’s a new challenge and a new opportunity and I look forward to it,” he said. “I want to keep the department going in the same positive direction and with the same vision.“
Village Manager David Uhl said, “The Village of Dundee is looking forward to working with Chief Garbo, we are extremely fortunate to have someone with the experience, knowledge and professionalism that Chief Garbo brings to the Dundee Police Department.”
For about 26 years Garbo served with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office before retiring as a sergeant. He then joined the Milan Police Department where he was the school resource officer. Two years ago he went to Dundee and worked in the schools until becoming chief. He heads the department that includes four full-time members and 12 part-time officers.
Garbo and his wife, Carla, have a daughter, Alexis, a junior at Michigan State University, East Lansing, and a son, Trevor, a senior at Saline High School.
