In 2007 I established the NBPD Crisis Negotiation Unit which consisted of only 4 team members, we now currently have a total of 12 team members. In 2008, I was promoted to Sergeant where I worked the Midnight Shift, Administrative Sergeant, and Day Shift Sergeant. In November of 2018 I transferred to the Criminal Investigation Division as a Detective. From 2008 I also assembled the NBPD Honor Guard which I led until September of 2018. I have been a previous NBPOA Board Member (Secretary) and now look forward to serving our association members as the next NBPOA President. I am a proud father of 2 children, who are both currently serving in the military, USMC & US Navy as well as a new grandfather.
