  Detective / Evening Patrol
How many years of experience do you have in law enforcement?
I have 24 years in law enforcement including 14 at NCISD.
Why did you choose this career?
After I left the Army, I wanted to either be a firefighter or a police officer.  The firefighter academy was under a hiring freeze, so I worked construction for a few years until I decided that it was time to change my profession to something I wanted to do.  I enrolled in the police academy and graduated in December 1992.
What training in law enforcement do you have?
Master Peace Officer License, K-9 Certified, SFST Certified (DWI), Taser Certified, Cell Phone Forensics Certified, Accident Investigator, Sexual Assult/Family Violence Investigator License, Telecommunications Operator, ALERTT/Active Shooter Training, Firearms instructor plus 40 hours of continuing education every four years as mandated by the Commission of Texas Law Enforcement.
What is your background?
I served in the U.S. Army and I graduated from the Houston Community College Police Academy.
What are your future plans?
Retirement and travel
