Police Career

I have over thirty-years in various areas of law enforcement, including sixteen years in command up to Assistant Chief of Police.  I started my law enforcement journey with the City of El Paso Police Department and worked my way to the rank of Lieutenant.  During that time, I commanded several specialized units within the organization, such as the Bomb Squad, SWAT, K-9-unit, Aviation unit, Dignitary Protection Unit, Investigations, Special Operations, Community Services, Office of Emergency Management, and the City Metro Unit.


Through the years, I’ve been able to acquire my Master’s degree in Public Administration, a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Science Justice, and hold a Master Peace Officers License with the Texas Commission of Law Enforcement.  I have completed advanced management training which include the National Association of Chief of Police Leadership Series, Advanced Fire Leadership Training, and attended Bill Blackwood LEMIT of Texas.


As Police Chief, I realize that it is important to implement appropriate policies and procedures to guide our employees. However, I believe that it is the people in our organization and the people in our community who make the difference. Our Mission Statement, listed below, clearly shows our focus and priorities.
