I'm an accomplished Veteran police officer with over 18 years of experience in the Law Enforcement community. I began my career with the Middlesex County Sheriff's Department where I was assigned to the Main Housing facility eventually working the Gang and Segregation Unit. I continued my career with the Reading Police Department where my first eleven years were spent acting inthe capacity of patrol officer where I became skilled in assessing situations and making critical decisions with minimal supervision. The remaining years of my service up to this point have been in a support services role where I have been assigned the tasks of Department Armorer, Fleet Manager, Licensing Officer, BVP Coordinator, and Radio Communications Officer which require a significant amount of attention to detail along with the multi-tasking of these functions while simultaneously maintaining my availability to other Department responsibilities including traditional police work.

I have served as Union President for the Reading Police Association Mass Cop Local 191, serving 6 terms, and in that capacity I am responsible for maintaining and managing the day to day business of the Union and fostering the professional relationship with the Office of the Chief through communication, cooperation and mutual understanding.
I have also been involved in the successful negotiations of the past 2 Union contracts with the Town of Reading.
In my present assignments, both pertaining to my responsibilities to the department and the representation of my fellow officers throughout these years, I have been able to demonstrate my abilities as a leader and role model.
My present positions often times require me to take on what some would call a role of supervision without rank where I believe through past guidance, experience, knowledge, organizational skills, natural abilities and maturity as a police officer I've been able to successfully demonstrate with great ability.

Middlesex County Sheriff's DepartmentMay 1995 to October 1996Corrections Officer Billerica, Massachusetts
I was responsible for assisting in the day to day care ,custody and control of approximately 1000 inmates housed at the Billerica House of Correction.
My primary assignment became the main housing unit and eventually the Gang & Segregation unit.
I was awarded a Sheriff's Commendation for actions taken during an inmate uprising where 8 officers including myself put down a disturbance involving almost 200 inmates.
I have been a Patrolman for over 16 years and in that time I've spent approximately 11 of those years assigned to patrol work.
My responsibilities included the interaction with members of the public on a daily basis, providing a variety of services as the situation and needs required, making critical in the moment decisions.
Throughout my career I've been involved in over 1250 investigations, arrests, report generations, and interviews in both criminal and non-criminal circumstances.
My present role as Department Armorer, Fleet Manager and Licensing officer require no less attention to detail but does demand a specialized and knowledge specific approach to accomplishing my tasks.
My attention is more specific to the needs of the Department and its personnel.
As Department Armorer I am tasked with the upkeep of all issued Firearms and the Training of all Department Personnel.
As Fleet Manager I'm responsible for the purchasing and upkeep of the Departments Fleet so that our people can meet the needs of the community without any hindrance on providing required services.
As Licensing Officer I process civilian License to Carry Firearms which require interviewing the applicants as well as providing a thorough background check on each candidate to ensure the utmost responsibility on my part to maintaining a safe community and Commonwealth.
While providing these services I've managed to develop more efficient approaches to accomplishing these tasks.
Through persistence, creativity and dedication to a changing police environment I've helped to create more advanced training programs I've managed to extend the road life of many of the fleet vehicles through purchasing Recommendations, attention to maintenance and equipment changes.
As Licensing requirements change and the influx of applicants increase so does the need to develop newer ways to handle the requests and I believe I have done this through organizational methods developed and proper time management.
As my duties and responsibilities change I am constantly striving to be creative and educate myself through training and guidance to improve on my personal abilities and how they can be applied to the changing environment of Policing.
