FL – Broward – Hollywood


In 1973, South Broward High School became Senior Class President and started and led the school's Sport Car Club. In 1974, I began my law enforcement career at the age of 19 in the City of Sunrise and continued until 1981 when I became a member of the Broward County Sheriff's Department. Throughout my tenure, I served in various units including road patrol, motorcycle unit, chiefs of police anti-racketeering unit, gang task force unit, S.T.O.P. unit, auto theft unit, and juvenile truancy unit, where I was instrumental in starting the unit and reducing home burglaries in the area. I also served in the Vice unit in an undercover capacity and had many other detachment assignments. One of my proud achievements was being the Sheriffs "Driver/ Bodyguard" and being a part of the Dignitary Protection Unit. During my time at the Broward County Sheriff's Office, I received several awards and accolades, including a full pension and benefits after 30 years of service. I was one of the first motorcycle members when the unit was reformed and became the first certified motorcycle instructor. In addition to my law enforcement career, I have been actively involved in various volunteer activities. I have served at First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale, volunteered at the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and volunteered at the Broward County Humane Society. I am also a member of The Hundred Club, which assists family members of fallen firefighters and law enforcement officers. I am currently a weekly attendee at Calvary Chapel church, where I serve as a greeter at the door entrance. Despite my injuries, I continue to be a good neighbor by helping out with tasks like cutting lawns and cleaning pools for those in need. One of my greatest accomplishments is my son Jeffrey, who has grown up to be a successful individual and now serves as a pastor. Overall, my life has been full of happiness and I find joy, comfort, and inner peace in serving our Creator, God.
