I have been with the Dept. for 34 plus years. I Joined the St. Joseph Co. Police Dept. in 1985 in which I worked as a special deputy in the jail for 8 1/2 years. I was then promoted to Patrolman and graduated from the police academy in 1994. I then worked the midnight shift road patrol for 9 years. I then transferred to be a school resource officer at one of our local high schools for 16 years. In between that time, when school was out for the summer, I worked the day shift road patrol, warrants division and the transportation division. I am currently the Assist. Chief in which I over see the Jail division.
