He has been a peace officer in the State of California since 1966 with basic training from


Alameda County Sheriff’s Office during 1965-66.  He served in the positions of Deputy


Sheriff, Police Officer, Police Detective, District Attorney Investigator, Chief Investigator,


State Investigator, Lead Senior Investigator, and Supervising Special Investigator I /


Lieutenant.

 

While employed as the District Attorney’s Chief Investigator for the Trinity
County


District Attorney’s Office, I served as the supervisor of the Family Support Division. 


Over the few years that I managed the Family Support Division, I was able to raise the


collection rate from $125,000.00 to $500,000.00 per year.  Also, while at Trinity County, I


conducted trial preparation investigations for the District Attorney working closely with


him to bring major criminal cases to a successful prosecution.

 

I left Trinity County District Attorney’s Office and moved to the Sacramento
Valley to care


for my parents as a result of their health.  I worked as a Resident Deputy Sheriff for the


Yolo County Sheriff’s Department and then worked for the Winters Police Department. 


While at Winters Police Department, I wrote a number of grants which were successful in


bringing additional revenue to the Police Department.  While employed by Winters


Police Department, I was selected “Officer of the Year” two years in a row for my


exceptional work in the community and grant writing ability.  Further, I was selected to


be the Grand Marshall for the Youth Day Parade; an honor bestowed upon me as a result


of my direct work with juveniles in the community and with the Winters Joint Unified


School District.

 

I left Winters Police Department to re-enter State service for promotional
opportunities. 


Napa State Hospital (NSH) employed me as a Hospital Police Officer I.  While employed


by NSH, I was promoted to Senior Special Investigator and transferred to Patton State


Hospital (PSH).  At PSH, I became the Lead Senior Special Investigator handling all of


PSH’s criminal, civil, and administrative cases.  During my time at PSH, I worked closely


with William L. Summers, Executive Director (Deceased), to bring issues to a positive


conclusion.

 

At PSH, I wrote policies, was a member of the Policy Review Board,
worked closely with


Central Nursing Services, Clinical Administrator, Hospital Administrator, Program


Directors and their assistants.  I was able to simplify the reporting process and was able


to clear over 100 cases per quarter with successful criminal prosecutions on most of the


cases delivered to the District Attorney’s Office.

 

In April 2001, I was given the opportunity to transfer to the Department of D
evelopmental


Services’ Headquarters Office in Sacramento.  While at Headquarters, I was assigned to


the Professional and Standards Branch of the Office of Protective Services (OPS).  In


May, June, and July 2001, I obtained Peace Officer Standards & Training (POST) training


to conduct Peace Officer background investigations and Peace Officer Internal Affairs


investigations.  Since, I have conducted numerous Peace Officer and Non-Peace Officer


Background investigations and general Internal Affairs investigations.  Additionally, I


managed the OPS mobile fleet which included fire engines, ambulances, police patrol


units, commander vehicles, and unmarked units.

 

Furthermore, I volunteered as a firefighter for the Weaverville Volunteer
Fire Department


and received training in fire protection and firefighting.  At San Mateo County District


Attorney’s Office and at Trinity County District Attorney’s Office, I wrote the Safety Policy


and Procedures for both offices.  At Trinity County, I was recruited as the safety trainer-


instructor for the Joint County Power to train all of the Joint County Power employees.

 

In 1971, I graduated from California State University at Sacramento with a
Bachelor of


Arts Degree in Criminal Justice and a Master of Arts Degree in 1978.  I continued my


education taking Peace Officer Standards of Training courses and other courses to


refresh and improve my skills.  I hold five POST Certificates, which are: three general law


enforcement certificates (Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced) and two specialized


Investigator certificates (Intermediate and Advanced).  I have a lifetime Secondary


Teaching Credential for all law enforcement subjects and completed the POST


Supervisory Core Course.

 

I retired on May 20, 2008, and have been managing security companies and
teaching


criminal justice courses at Heald College, San Jose/Milpitas Campus.  I acquired the


Heald College security contract and stepped down from teaching at Heald.  I was


returned to Heald College Instructional Staff in Legal and Criminal Justice Department. 


Heald College was controlled by the parent company Corinthian Colleges, Inc. which


filed bankruptcy on April 26, 2015.  My contract ended and all teachers/instructors were


dismissed as a result of the campus closing.  However, my staff was armed on campus


for over two years and successfully harden the target and maintained safety and security


on the campus.

 

When considering my experience and State Secondary Education
Teaching Credential, I


am the perfect candidate to manage security for all segments of our society, for all areas


of concern, and to conduct investigation in the State of California and other locations as


required.

 

I conduct investigations for one law firm in the state assisting the law firm
to


successfully litigate cases to a positive conclusion.

 

My belief is security/investigators/police/other law enforcement staff must
meet the


challenge of the future by moving forward with positive innovations to improve services


and keep budget expenditures to the lowest possible level.  We need to meet the needs


of each employee, student, client, customer, and community member.  There is a median


in the management of a law enforcement public safety and as an owner of a security firm


and an investigator that should protect the community as a whole that must be


achieved.  I am willing to meet this challenge.  My lengthy experience, training, and


education will benefit you and your clients.
