Thank you for helping us become better!

Barbara Al-Ali

Congratulations Barbara Al-Ali (El Paso – FBI)

A special THANK YOU to Barbara for going above and beyond for OPD!  She is retiring after more than 20 years with the FBI.

Deputy Chief, Robert Doporto, traveled to El Paso to give her a special plaque.  She nominated several of our Command Staff to go to the National FBI Academy.  Her efforts helped to enhance the quality of our leadership here at the Odessa Police Department.

We are appreciative!
