Work History
Police Officer, 01/2019 to Current
University Of MichiganAnn Arbor, MI,


My duties include criminal patrol and response to calls for service. This is a nutshell description for all street level law enforcement officers in this country.

Our department culture diverts slightly from the norm in that he primary responding officer is in charge of the incident response. They are responsible for the direction of all assets and personnel. Any responding supervisors or senior personnel act more as a resource for policy and procedure. This places far more responsibility on the individual officer than most other agencies our size.

I have over 30 years of law enforcement experience, including leadership, training, and policy making positions. I have excellent interpersonal communication skills and have an ability to make correct decisions under stress while quickly processing information.

Police Sergeant, 05/2015 to 01/2019
University Of CaliforniaFremont, CA,


I started in May of 2015 as a police officer and was promoted about a year later to the position of Police Sergeant. I was promoted at a time when the department had no permanent chief. The department was also without an active policy manual, or a training program. Nearly every system in the department was foundering. The facilities and vehicles were substandard and personnel were very short staffed.

My duties as a sergeant started with supervising police officers in the completion of their duties. This included first line supervision on scenes, evaluating reports and investigations, and assigning work duties. I also participated in the hiring process for new officers and dispatchers.

As a sergeant, I was responsible for departmental training, equipment, and internal investigations. In that role I acted as a primary field trainer and a supervisor for the training program to include evaluations, ongoing training programs, and record keeping.

Being tasked with internal investigations required me to complete multiple investigations on personnel to include several involving the newly appointed chief of police. This was accomplished correctly and thoroughly despite the fact I was serving under a probationary term.

I attended meetings with other city personnel, law enforcement officials and mainly with citizens. As a patrol sergeant, I was one of the main faces of the department and worked to bring that agency more online with current policies and procedures.

Deputy Sheriff, 02/1992 to 05/2015
Anoka County, MnAnoka, MN,


My primary duties as a Deputy Sheriff included criminal patrol and response to calls for service. At this office, deputies were personally responsible for completing all their own investigations excluding the very serious crimes (homicide, most sex crimes) During my nearly 24 years with the Lincoln County Sheriff's office, I worked as a firearms instructor, a SWAT member, a marine deputy, and a field training officer. I assisted with several search and rescue operations as well as criminal investigations in urban, rural, and wilderness type areas.

US Army Military Police, 09/1986 to 05/1991
US ArmyCity, STATE,


Criminal patrol and response to calls for service on post. 2 yrs spent as a patrolman and SWAT member, 2 yrs as a plainclothes investigator. Post consisted of 60-70,000 full time residents at the time I was assigned.

I deployed overseas as a squad leader during the invasion of Panama, Operation Just Cause. While there I was responsible for 8 to 10 soldiers. After the conclusion of combat operations, my unit participated in training new national police force.
