Quote: NA

I began my career with the Elizabeth Police Department in 1988 as a 911 Operator. In 2000 I became a Police Officer and worked in the Patrol Division until 2009 when I became a D.A.R.E. Officer. In 2012 I was promoted to the rank of Detective where I currently still am. My responsibilities as detective include investigating crimes against property, I am also the ABC Detective for the city. My career has allowed me to meet people from all walks of life and assist many people. If I was given the chance to re do my life, I would choose this career all over again.
