My personal roots run deep in this city. I
was born and raised in Humble. I graduated from Humble High School in 1975. Shortly after graduation I proudly
enlisted into the United States Marine Corps. After completing my tour of duty, and an honorable discharge, I
returned to the City of Humble, to again make it my home. It was at this point that I developed the desire for a
career in law enforcement. My natural choice was to become a member of the Humble Police Department.
I later graduated with Honors from the University of Houston Police Academy in 1981. A few months later I was
hired as a Police Officer (Patrolman) for the City of Humble in June 1982; this began my law
Throughout my career I have been very fortunate in the various job assignments that I have had an opportunity to
work. For my first two years I was a patrolman assigned to the night shift and later to the day shift conducting
the widely varied duties of a patrol officer. In 1984 I was promoted to the rank of detective and assigned the
investigation of auto thefts. A short time later I was re-assigned for a two year stint to the Houston Police
Department Auto Theft Task Force. My assignment while there was to conduct investigations into organized auto
theft rings, and identifying criminal outlets for stolen vehicle parts such as (Auto Accessory Stores/Auto
Salvage yards, etc. ) that front as legitimate business and sell their stolen goods to unsuspecting car dealerships,
individuals, and other businesses. A few years later I was assigned to the Harris County Organized Crime Narcotics
Task Force where I spent five and half years working cases involving the smuggling and international transportation
of narcotics. These cases involved both state and federal prosecution of the suspects and the criminal organizations
to which they belonged. The center of operations for many of these criminal organizations often crossed both state
lines, and international borders.
Prior to and after my return to Humble Police Department (between outside agency assignments) I would continue to
work all types of cases that would eventually round out my nineteen (19) years of detective work. I consider myself
very fortunate to have been given many different types of investigative assignments during my career. The last five
years as a detective (prior to promotion) I worked assault/robbery and homicide cases.
I found that for me, the work of a detective with its varying case assignments, and the responsibility that goes
with them to be the most professionally rewarding and most personally satisfying within the investigative areas
of law enforcement.
I believe that the many years of varied assignments that I have experienced have given me a well rounded and diverse
law enforcement background. In May 2003 I was promoted to the rank of Captain. I held that position until April of
2007 when I again was promoted to my current rank as the Assistant Chief of Police for the City of Humble.
Some of the professional organizations to which I am a member include The Texas Police Chief’s Association, The
Humble Police Officers Association (Former Director), North Harris County Criminal Justice Association (Former
President), Texas Police Association, Humble Masonic Lodge #979, Houston Scottish Rite, Arabia Shrine Temple,
Homicide Investigators of Texas, Texas Municipal Peace Officers Association, and the International Association of
Chiefs of Police.
My education in law enforcement includes graduation from the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas at Sam
Houston State University and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Leadership Command College in addition to many
other law enforcement related fields of study. In addition, I hold a “Masters Peace Officer” Certification from the
State of Texas.
Over my career I have received various awards. The first award that I received was while I was in the police academy
for achieving “Highest Academic Honors” by maintaining the highest grade point average throughout the police academy.
In addition to this I have received numerous other awards such as “Officer/Detective” of the Year in 1986. I have
also been honored with two (2) “Exemplary Service” Awards by the Humble Police Department and the “State of Texas
Professional Achievement Award” from Texas Governor Rick Perry in 2006.
My goals for the department include obtaining the very best in equipment and the employment of the very latest in
advanced technologies in the field of law enforcement. This is to include patrol vehicles, telephone and radio
communications, computer assisted dispatch systems (CAD), in car digital video systems, department and in car
computer systems, Crime Laboratory, Property & Evidence facility, the best in officer training/protective and
safety equipment, among many other things that can be used to enhance our service to the community, and our
professionalism as a department. It is my firm belief that the citizens of Humble deserve to have the very best
afforded to them in the way of police services. To include the prompt response to calls, police officers are
well trained, highly motivated, well equipped, law enforcement professionals.
I wish to foster community support and develop department-wide interaction with many local civic and business
leaders. Developing a strong and lasting relationship with our local business community will prevent
crime and create a safer environment for our citizens who are also their customers. I intend to accomplish this
by utilizing the department's training divisions, community services officer, and out-reach programs such as our
Citizens Police Academy, Ride-Along Program, D.A.R.E. Programs, and National Night Out, among several other events
that are regularly scheduled throughout each year. By use of these various programs, it creates open lines of
communication which can be used to build a strong relationship between the public, civic leaders, business
community, and the police department. I believe that these efforts, combined with a well-trained, professional
police force that is responsive to the public’s needs and by aggressively pursuing the arrest and prosecution
of criminals, will foster public confidence and create a safer city for every citizen to live and work.
