Why Law EnforcementI was always drawn to the Police or military profession. It was what I always wanted to do.  My only fall back was being a country music singer and my voice is horrible!
First Arrest 
Best part of the jobFirst and foremost I like when bad guys go to jail.  I’m also proud to work in the community that I grew up in and somewhere that is still home to many loved ones.
HobbiesI enjoy weight lifting, crossfit, and any other activity that leads to personal health and fitness.  Most of all I love spending time with my family.
