2008 - Present
As a bike officer I primarily address quality of life issues in and around the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Trained in advanced crisis intervention, I strive to connect people with the services they often desperately need. When arrest is absolutely necessary I often advocate for diversion methods when appropriate. Diversion services include LEAD, drug court, mental health court, veterans court, addiction recovery services, and access to the Mobile Crisis Team.
One of my current collateral duties is serving as the East Precinct Bike mechanic. Previously I have been a Field Training Officer and Evidence Technician.
I have provided preliminary investigations on the full spectrum of police work including property crimes; burglary, theft, destruction, arson, and fraud, as well as crimes against people; aggravated assaults, sexual assaults, robbery, crimes against children, harassment, stalking, neglect, and domestic violence.
I regularly work nightlife emphasis and violence prevention details in order to better serve the community and business needs in regard to nightlife nuisances, disturbances, and quality of life issues throughout the neighborhoods I serve.
I want to continue to develop my crisis intervention skills and eventually become a peer support counselor as well as a Crisis Negotiator.
