Christopher Elg



I retired from municipal law enforcement after a thirty-three year career in 2017. My last position was as Chief of Police for the Village of Tequesta, Florida and had served in that position since February 2013. Prior to my last position I served as a Chief of Police in Washington State, New Jersey, Michigan and Louisiana. I started my law enforcement career as a New York State Trooper where I served for ten years.

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Police Science and my Master’s Degree in Public Administration from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. Several years later I earned a second Master’s Degree in Administrative Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, New Jersey. I enjoy learning just as much as I enjoy teaching.

Currently I am on active duty with the United States Coast Guard and serve as a Special Agent with the Coast Guard Investigative Service assigned to Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC.
