Since joining the Army Military Police at the age of 18, I found that I performed very well in law enforcement and enjoyed the service and sense of accomplishment. As a veteran who was deployed to other countries, I have a strong sense of duty and appreciation of the liberties we enjoy as Americans.
During my law enforcement career I have had the opportunity to serve in almost all areas of a Sheriff’s Office. Jailer, Patrol Deputy, SWAT team member, Police Instructor, Criminal Investigator, Sergeant, Lieutenant and Chief Deputy. I have been Chief Deputy since 2013.
I hold Texas Commission On Law Enforcement (TCOLE) Master Peace Officer & Jailer Certifications. The Master certification is the highest level possible.
The Archer County Sheriff’s Office requires an experienced and qualified person as Sheriff. I am that person. There is no area of the Sheriff’s Office that I am unfamiliar with. I will begin on my first day to perform the job with the training, knowledge and experience that others may take years to accumulate.
I have earned over 4,300 certified hours of law enforcement training, including advanced training in homicide, sexual assault, infant deaths, bloodstain pattern analysis, crime scene reconstruction, shooting reconstruction & ballistics, cellular phone forensics and interviewing/interrogation plus a DEA clandestine drug lab investigation certification. I have used this extensive training to solve the most serious of crimes from Homicides to Sexual Assaults of Children in Archer County. I have worked almost every other manner of crime from computer fraud to thefts to burglaries. I have a reputation for being very thorough and I am relentless in my pursuit of those that victimize others.
A Smooth Transition.
Historically, some candidates for Sheriff have announced plans to make major staffing and policy changes. I have no such plans, as the Archer County Sheriff’s Office is already very organized and well-managed. The current employees are some of the best trained and dedicated in the business.
As my grandfather was fond of saying, “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.” I hope to make what is best about our Sheriff’s Office even better, and work to improve on areas that need attention.
