Professional Summary

I am a sworn law enforcement Officer for the Butte-Silver Bow Law Enforcement department for the past 25 years. I have extensive experience as a supervisor as both a Sergeant and Lieutenant. As such I maintain strong working relationships with Officers, Administrators, as well as other local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies. During my time as a Detective Sergeant I have conducted a variety of felony investigations, collected evidence, and interviewed victims, witnesses, and suspects. As part of those investigations I compile digital case files which include reports and extensive documentation. We use a variety of computer programs, software, and apps to assist in our investigations. Case files have to be organized to be reviewed by supervisors, county attorneys, defense attorneys, and court officers. My investigations demonstrate my ability to organize, problem solve, work as an independent investigator as well as part of a team, and maintain strong relationships with all levels of the organization, outside agencies, and the public. I have created and presented presentations on a variety of subjects including internet crimes against children, internet safety, active shooter response, and crisis intervention and de-escalation and presented to groups of varying size (15-150 persons) and age (Elementary, Middle, High School, College, and adults). My experience with interviews and hostage/crisis negotiation is invaluable in communicating with all types of people.
