Years in law enforcement both with the King County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) and any other agencies

Time in Newcastle and what you like about being here

Almost a year with Newcastle. I enjoy having the freedom to conduct follow-up calls for service and spend time with citizens who call the police. Oftentimes, I have been rushed to process the information and move onto the next call for service.
The staffing and call load in Newcastle frequently allows me to spend the appropriate amount of time with victims to investigate the crime and conduct follow-up if necessary. I also enjoy being able to see my cases through to completion, even if they are assigned to the detective for further follow-up. 

What do you wish people knew about police/police work?

Law enforcement is an evolving profession, and the King County Sheriff's Office does an excellent job of pushing out legal updates so that the frontline personnel are current on police practices.

Hobbies outside of work?
I enjoy riding motorcycles, hiking and backpacking, traveling, and spending time with family.
