I have worked in law enforcement and the security industry as a trainer for close to 40 years, with experience in both administration and field work. I graduated from Kaplan University in 2010 with a BS in paralegal studies, and a recent graduate from the University of Phoenix with a master's degree in the administration of justice and security. My GPA from Phoenix at graduation was 3.78, as I was serious about doing well.

Criminal Justice

I started my law enforcement career in 1979 with a small police department in New Castle Delaware, and remained there for about two years only as a helper. In 1981 I was hired by the University of Delaware as a security officer, and was promoted into the police division after about a year. I attended the Delaware State Police Academy from September 1983 to December 1983 while still with the U of D, Had an opportunity to return to the New Castle police department in 1988 as a patrolman, and eventually promoted to Corporal until I had another opportunity to work with the state courts as a court constable, then in 2000 I was able to obtain a position with Securitas security as a training manager where I remained until March 2012.

My first degree was from Delaware Technical and Community College, where I received an AA in Criminal Justice in 1981, and had not gone back to college until 2005, where I attended Kaplan University, and completed my BS in Paralegal Studies in 2010. My most recent degree is from the University of Phoenix, where I was able to complete my requirements for a MS in the Administration of Justice and Security, my goal is to return to the University of Phoenix in 2013 to obtain my Ph.D. in management and leadership.
