I worked as a police officer for 30 years with a municipal police department serving at every rank to include Chief of Police for five of those years. I also served 4 years with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Drug Task Force and most recently at the end of my law enforcement career; I served 4 years with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. After retiring from the police department, I worked 2 years as the Director of Safety and Security for a major hospitality group.
I am a graduate of the FBI National Academy and hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organization Management and a Master of Science Degree in Law Enforcement Administration. In April of 2014, I earned my Ed.D. in Organizational Leadership. I am firmly committed to being a lifelong learner. I have been teaching for the past 15 years, and I teach a wide range of law enforcement and public safety topics.
As a teacher, I believe that one should share their knowledge and experiences, but in the same breath understand the importance of learning from the knowledge and experience of one’s students, so I always encourage my students to share their experience with me, as well as their classmates. I believe in helping students achieve their goals, and I am inspired by the success of my students in academics, as well as their career endeavors.
