Upon his retirement, he came to the realization that he still had something to give back to his fellow first responders, their agencies, and private companies. It is with this desire to educate and mentor, that he created my own company, The H.E.R.O. Consultant Group and now; keeping with his desire to give back, he also elected to instruct for the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training Academy of Counterterrorist Education, (NCBRT) at Louisiana State University, (LSU.)
Coming from a law enforcement background, I’ve served in several capacities for the past thirty years to include Road Patrol, Investigations, Forensics, Training, Command and Control, Police Operations, and Emergency Management. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and a Master’s Degree in Emergency Management and Planning. I’ve had the experience of serving at the Officers Level as well as the Command Level in several of these fields throughout my career. I’ve been a certified Police instructor since the early 90’s and have taught in several areas to include: investigations, supervision (First-Line and Middle Management), Incident Command and in the critical incident management fields. In the Emergency Management field, I am certified by the State of Florida to instruct, (L-449) in Incident Command System, ICS, and have been certified as an Incident Commander and Operations Section Chief. For Miami-Dade County during the Emergency Operations Center, EOC, activations, I’ve acted in the capacity of Public Safety Branch Director, and Municipal Branch Director accordingly.
During any critical event (s) that involves a police response, it is imperative that police field commanders as well as the civilian populations we serve, are properly trained in the field of emergencies and police command and control. Making the proper critical decisions at the start of any critical event will most likely lead to the successful conclusion and the desired outcome at all major scenes. I look forward to sharing and interacting with all of you as we move forward to better serve and protect this great Nation.
