Professional Experience
07/2011 to 02/2015 Commissioner of Police Moffat County | Craig, CO,

As Commissioner of Police of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, my main priority was to protect and serve the people of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. I was by constitution the Chief of Police, the Chief Immigration Officer, the Chief of Airport and Sea Port Security, and the Chief Licensing Authority of the Federation. I was Queen Elizabeth II top law enforcement officer in the Federation. I commanded the Federation's 432 sworn police officers and 150 civilian personnel. I was hired as police commissioner because there was an increase in homicides in the Federation. Through training and vision, the police force engaged in proactive law enforcement. Without any new hires, and through proper redeployment of troops, we were able to reduce the homicide rate in my first year by 47%. We were able to establish a highly visible patrol squad that patrolled our high crime areas. Community policing was introduced and town hall meetings were held to learn how best the agency could help restore the community's trust in the police force. The M.A.G.I.C. and hydroponic programs were implemented as part of an initiative to help at risk children. A curfew program and School Resource Officer program was established to help reduce school time violence. Bullet Casting, homicide investigations, and forensic training with the help of the US Department of Justice were initiated. Year round in-service training and continuing education for police officers was implemented and the Private Security Act and the Concealed Weapons Permits Act were rewritten. Overall, crime was significantly reduced in the first two years of my leadership, causing CARICOM and CBSI to use the efforts of crime reduction and control in the Federation to be emulated in the Eastern Caribbean States.

01/1991 to 01/2003 Deputy Sheriff Moffat County | Craig, CO, I served as a licensed Police In-Service Instructor for over 3,000 deputies, and civilians, as a member of the training division. I co-authored the Harris County Sheriff's Department Accreditation Manual. I worked special investigations with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, Customs and Border Patrol, Drug Enforcement Agency, and the FBI. I Received letters of commendation for outstanding investigations from these agencies. I ran for sheriff in Texas in 2000.
01/1989 to 01/2003 Deputy Sheriff First Class | City, STATE, My primary duty as an Orange County Deputy Sheriff - Walt Disney World Sector VI Uniform Patrol Division - was to respond to public safety calls for service; provide protection of life and property; interact with a culturally and socially diverse population; employ discretion in solving problems and maintaining public order while seeking to prevent crime by being proactive. I conducted investigations; made arrests; issued citations and warnings; assisted the public; and performed administrative support tasks. I have served as a detective with the Special Operations and Investigations Division-Major Case Section-Sexual Offender Surveillance Squad. I initiated sexual offender violation investigations, performed surveillances when necessary, wrote arrest warrants based upon probable cause, presented warrants to the district judge for review and signature, filed appropriate felony charges with the Florida State Attorney Office, arrested the violator based on the information in the warrant, and testified in court when necessary. All duties were performed with minimal supervision.
01/1987 to 01/1991 Interim Chief of Police Kendleton Police Department | City, STATE, As the Chief of Police I directly supervised a department of law enforcement professionals. I assigned work schedules, reviewed employees' job performance, was responsible for employee selection, performance evaluation, training, and discipline of the department's staff. My essential duties were to attend a minimum of one Kendleton City Council meeting each month and report on the status of the department, the budget, and other issues within the community. I directed, coordinated, and monitored all department procedures, practices, and activities, by taking the necessary steps to improve police operations. This was done through continuous monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness and responsiveness of the department. On a monthly basis I prepared Uniform Crime Reports and other state statistical information for the annual city report. As the Incident Commander at the scene of emergencies, serious crimes, and accidents, I made the final decision as to the course of action pertaining to the protection of citizens, property, and police personnel. I established department goals, long-range plans, objectives, policies, directives, regulations, and procedures, based upon the needs of the city and the police department. I had final authority for decisions pertaining to law enforcement within the City of Kendleton.
01/1983 to 01/1987 Surveillance Director Equifax Services | City, STATE, I served as Surveillance Director for Equifax Services for the district ranging from Houston, Texas to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I began the surveillance division in the Texas area and my unit grossed over one million dollars in revenue in the first year of operation. I created and submitted a budget to regional headquarters which in turn created revenue for the organization. The unit was so profitable and successful in the first year, that in the second year, I was named Director of Surveillance which enabled me to hire and supervise six investigators to handle the volume of business generated by the unit. The team investigated white collar (insurance fraud) and worker's compensation fraud cases in Texas and Louisiana.
