My law enforcement career started with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office in 1987 when I became an Auxiliary Deputy Sheriff. I was hired as a full time deputy in 1988 and began as a patrol deputy.
Besides handling my patrol duties, areas of focus include the following: Traffic Division (motorcycle patrol and crash investigation), Canine Unit (patrol dog and narcotics dog handler), Internal Affairs, and Community Policing.
The supervisory portion of my career began with my promotion to the rank of sergeant in 1999. As a sergeant, I supervised patrol deputies and also spent some time assigned as an investigative sergeant in Internal Affairs. I was promoted to lieutenant in 2003 and began concentrating on the administrative aspects of my career, which included shift scheduling, training, budget preparation and implementation.
