I joined the Arlington Police Department in 2000 as part of Class #19. In my almost 20 years of service, I have served in several different units and roles. I’ve worked in Community Services, I held a position as the Basic Academy Coordinator for 7 years, a PTO on Patrol for 5+ years and I have been and am currently an instructor in various topics (Patrol Procedures, C.I.T., DT, Gracie Instructor, Firearms Instructor, Field Notetaking, C.I.T.) for the past 15 years. I am an MHPO, working with our Co-Responders program with MHMR Tarrant County, a member of our Peer Support team - all of which I do as ancillary duties while working South Patrol - B shift. I have made it my mission in Law Enforcement to work towards training, serving and responding to the needs of officers. I dedicate my off time to making sure officers have someone in their corner. Welcome!
