I have been with the Lakewood Police Department for 40 years now, and it is the quality of people who work here that has made me stay all these years. There is one constant, and that is a desire to make a difference.

The department’s size is unique because it includes a “close knit” work environment with the options for special assignments and advancement. The Lakewood Police Department is an excellent department to work for and offers a rewarding career in law enforcement.

I fill the role of the school resource officer at Alameda International High School … I not only ran the Denver Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon, but did it while pushing a student from Alameda High School who suffers from cerebral palsy. Join the Lakewood Police Department and join my running team!
