I am a former member of the Hawthorne Police Department, in the State of California, where I was at various times, a police officer, field supervisor, detective and sergeant.
I was specially trained as an undercover investigator by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs office. As a member of the Hawthorne Police Department, I have performed all the duties of a law enforcement officer including but not limited to street patrol, DUI enforcement and investigation, traffic, detective bureau, and robbery investigations. As a police officer I engaged in the traffic stop of motorists, investigations, arrests, handcuffing, transporting and processing of individuals. I hold an advanced certificate in Peace Officer Standards and Training. I am a qualified instructor in Police Control Restraint Techniques. I have been qualified as an expert in police practices in both federal court and California state courts, especially with regard to the use of force, report writing and officer misconduct. Prior to becoming a police officer, I had worked as a deputy in Ventura County, California. I spent a combined period of approximately nine years as a sheriff deputy and police officer.
