Hello, Welcome to Law Enforcement,

The career of law enforcement is vast and exciting with many opportunities for one to challenge themselves. There isn’t a more interesting or exciting career choice one could have.

Law enforcement professionals are challenged each and every day with keeping our communities safe and pursuing those that do wrong in the pursuit of justice.

I became a police officer for the San Antonio Police Department in 1990 and retired from The Colony Police Department in 2021.

During my career, I had many challenging and rewarding positions that included:

Patrol Officer

Intoxylizer Operator

Field Training Officer

Police Instructor

Explorer Post Advisor

Hostage Negotiator

Patrol Sergeant

Patrol Lieutenant

This is my second year of teaching law enforcement at TECC – East.

So, come on in and be a part of one of the most rewarding careers available that will challenge your mind, give satisfaction in doing something worthwhile for your community, and will keep you engaged for years to come.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you have about the law enforcement classes.
