(561) 639-1306-H / (561) 642-2101W/ (561) 685-2280-C Objective: To utilize the skills I have obtained in a career as a Police Chief that has provide me many years of success. My goal is to continue to contribute in a positive way to the profession that I have been privileged to serve in. I have been very successful in my efforts to bring progressive thought and non-traditional solutions to each organization I have been privileged to lead and would like to continue that with an organization that serves the needs of law enforcement and government. I am energetic and able to adjust to changing demographic and economic situations rapidly, which has been demonstrated in my most recent successes, both in Greenacres as well as Cocoa, Florida.

Director of Public Safety City of Greenacres Greenacres, FL. 33467

Current position, 2+ years.

Oversee both police and fire/rescue operations and have reorganized the public safety function as it is no longer a fully integrated operation. The reorganizing of the Department to expand road patrol and traffic functions to address increased gang and drug activity occurring in Palm Beach County and establishing joint programs with the School Board Police as well as the County Sheriff has been a major achievement. Chief of Police Cocoa, FL. 32922 4+ years.

Directed an organization from the least professional in the County to one of the most recognized, to include assisting other agencies with major investigations, and achieving State accreditation in less than two years without going through the traditional mock site visit. I initiated efforts that led to the reduction of violent crime within the City by more than 20% in three years, as well as the formation of a street crimes unit to address City “hot spots” and the crime within them. I supervised the establishing of the Department as one of the most diverse in the County, reflecting the City demographics. Deputy Chief & Chief of Police City of Inkster Inkster, MI. 48141 3.5 years.

Initially hired as the Deputy Chief and later promoted to Chief I lead the efforts which saw a significant reduction in violent crime, particularly homicide, within the City that had a minority population of over 70%. The reorganization of the department and the re-writing of the entire policy and procedures manual was my greatest accomplishment, leading to accreditation, and an elevated trust by the community.

Chief of Police City of Memphis Memphis, MI. 48041

3+ years.

I took over a depart ment that had not had a Chief in six months and that been in litigation with the previous chief f or that per iod of time. I created policy where there was none and was highly successf ul in increasing the size of the department via grants, by obt aining more than six grants in three years. I was able to provide new vehicles and much needed equipment as well as lead several Count y- wide eff orts in traff ic and drug enf orcement. Chief of Police Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Petoskey, MI. 49770 1 year.

This position was one of enormous challenge, in that it was designed to build a police department f rom the ground up. The process was both challenging as well as exciting, allowing me to be creat ive and challenged simultaneously. The opportunit y to work with another culture such as t he Odawa is not of ten f ound and it proved to be enormously enr iching. I accomplished all of the expected goals well in advance of the given time lines and was able to provide the Tribe with a f oundation that would allow rapid and consistent growt h. Director, Washtenaw Police Academy Washtenaw Community College Ann Arbor, MI. 48016 8 years.

I pioneered the addit ion of a Police Academy and the I n- Ser vice Training component. This academ y grew in reputation Stat e wide and was f requently a pilot test site f or new courses and was a recognized leader f or its innovat ive method of training and advancements. During my tenure I also taught classes in the academic program, including crim inal justice, sociology, and took courses in f ire science and ser ved as the Department Chair of f ive disciplines.
