The Northwest Area Command is overseen by Acting Commander Chris Patterson.

Greeting all.  I have lived in Northwest Area Command for the vast majority of my career and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve my neighbors and lead such an outstanding crew of civilians, officers and supervisors here in the Northwest.  While our Area Command has its concerns and issues myself and the officers of this fine command will work day in and day out to do everything we can to ensure that you and your families can have a safe place to call home, raise your families and build better business opportunities here on this side of the river.
