I am a 14-year veteran of the Houston Police Department. I spent two years in Patrol where my duties were to maintain order by acting as a first responder to emergencies, investigating crimes, and performing community outreach.
I was then selected to become a Traffic and Accident Investigator where I spent the last ten years before being chosen to work in the recruiting section of the Human Resources Division.
