Sergeant at Arms
I have been employed with the LVMPD since 1992. I spent my first five years on graveyard until I transferred to day shift as an FTO in William area for one year. In 1998, I transferred to the Gang Unit as part of the first Enforcement Team. Two years later, I transferred to day shift as part of the investigative team who investigated shootings, stabbings and other violent gang-related crimes. After 9/11, I was recalled back to active duty in the United States Air Force and after 24 years of Service, I retired from the USAF in 2008. In 2007, I joined the Counter-Terrorism Unit, where I traveled to and lived in Washington, D.C., as a liaison for the LVMPD to the Department of Homeland Security’s National Operations Center. I have been a Defensive Tactics Instructor for nearly my entire career and became a Firearms Instructor in 1998. I have been a Representative on the LVPPA Board since April 6, 2006. I spent the first year representing the Gang Unit and was appointed to an At-Large position representing Counter Terrorism, ARMOR, Emergency Management and the Department’s DOC. In 2009 Chris Collins and the Executive Board asked me to join the team as a full-time representative in the position of Secretary.
