|Rank||Police K9 Officer|
|Agency||Stockton Police Department|
|Station/Area Command||Community Response Team (CRT)|
|Why Law Enforcement||When I was a young child I would watch the police drive by my house in cool cars with lights and sirens. It did not take long for me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I became a member of the Stockton Police Senior Cadet Program while still working my full time job changing tires. A short time later I enrolled myself into the Police Academy and I was hired by the Stockton Police Department. I hit the streets as a full fledged Police Officer in October of 2008. I became a K9 Officer in October of 2011 and assigned to the Community Response Team in June of 2012, which is still my current assignment to this date.|
|First Arrest||My first arrest as a solo officer was a traffic stop on a silver 1990 Acura Integra. I activated my overhead lights, to conduct the traffic stop and the vehicle pulled over. The front passenger quickly exited the vehicle and fled on foot. I gave chase and caught him after a short foot pursuit. I conducted a search of his person and located a loaded .38 cal revolver in his pocket. When I returned to my patrol car the vehicle was gone. The next day I located the vehicle in a nearby apartment complex parking lot. I arrested the driver, who was a parolee and also had a loaded .22 revolver in his possession. Ever since this day, I have had an attraction to locating and confiscating firearms from people who should not have them.|
|Best part of the job||I would have to say that the best part of my job is that it’s my dream job. Ever since I was a child, I could not imagine doing anything else. The fact that I am able to go work on a daily basis and do the job I love, is priceless. I love to address high profile crimes such as stolen vehicles, firearms, narcotics, and felons. Every day I put the uniform on is a new rush for me, not knowing what is to come.|
|Hobbies||I have several hobbies outside of work. I play roller hockey once a week on an organized league. I also love to get out and play golf every chance I get. Fishing, kayaking and any type of outdoor activity including camping have always been a pastime of mine as well.|
