I’ve had the opportunity to serve alongside the men and women of the LVMPD for over 17 years. Prior to being selected as PMSA Chairman, I held Lieutenant positions in Patrol, Special Weapons and Tactics, Patrol Administration, and Force Investigations. As a Sergeant, I was assigned to Patrol, Problem Solving, Gang Enforcement, Gang CORE Team, and Executive Sergeant to the Sheriff. As an Officer, I served in Patrol, Recruiting, and at the Academy as a Training Officer. I currently sit on the Board of Directors for the Southern Nevada Police Athletic League and The Society for Integrity in Force Investigations and Reporting. I possess a BS in Criminal Justice from the Univ. of Oklahoma and instructs in the Nevada POST Supervisor and Management Schools respectively. I instruct various courses associated with the challenging discipline of police leadership.
“I am honored to serve the leaders of the LVMPD in pursuit of our shared vision. The citizens of this community truly deserve the best service from the men and women of Metro and by supporting the leaders of Police and Correction Officers, the PMSA is instrumental in building and sustaining police efficacy and public trust within our community.”
