I am currently assigned as a detective sergeant on an investigative squad. Been with Metro for almost 21 years. My past assignments have included jail corrections, patrol, Problem Solving Unit, DARE, Quality Assurance, Violent Crimes, and Vice. I have been involved with HOPE for a little over 2 years. I am committed to the program because I have seen with my own two eyes that it is successful and ultimately working. Simply taking criminals to jail and adding to the high recidivism rates is not benefiting the community. The genuine partnership between HOPE and the police department is not only effective, but it is also positively contributing to society and changing it for the better. Being a small part of HOPE has absolutely been one of the highlights of my career.
