Hi everybody,


I am a recently retired LEO with 24 years service in DFW area. Took a year off  for some much needed rest. Now I'm looking for 2nd career but understandably no more 1st responder stuff. Hopefully I will network with others here who have made successful career transitions. I have specialized experience in K9, SWAT, field crime scene investigation, drug interdiction and police photography. Other than that I enjoy passing along knowledge from my time as a police officer to others starting out or considering commitments to public service. Wasn't easy to leave but no regrets.


Thanks again to the members who have made me feel quite welcome here.

Welcome from the west Texas town of El Paso (no, I won't sing it like Marty Robins!) The crime scene photography experience shows on the pictures on your profile page! They are incredible!

 Welcome to PL from Ohio.  Best of luck with your transition.  I think UncleDennis hit it right on the head.  Have you thought about teaching?

Absolutely! We even have a great program in the local high school's ATC (Advanced Technology Center) where police science is taught; even some crime scene classes. Unfortunately all the teaching positions are filled right now. Maybe in the future.

Hmmm... That's a thought. I like Pottsboro. I saw some of the coverage on the news and was curious Arterburn didn't appoint successor. (not sure if that's how it is done up there) Thanks for mentioning this btw. Don't think I have the command experience they want. (Lt or above)
