It has been one of my goals to lend my experience in a way that is able to facilitate younger officers gaining experience that they may have never had at such an early point in their

Before the academy he had a college degree in Fire Prevention wanting to be a Fire Fighter and had worked in the private
During the 2014 evaluation cycle Det. Thomas developed a strained relationship with some patrol officers, as he included irrelevant material in reports, in a manner to shine light on other officer’s deficiencies. He was instructed not to utilize narratives in that manner but document in memo form and advise. I was also provided information from the prosecutor’s office that they did not like Thomas’s approach with them in reference to warrants, or prosecution of cases, and the feeling as though he was trying to tell them how to do their job. It was then requested that all requests come from me in the communication process as they did not feel as though they would receive cooperation from Thomas.

Weekly meetings with members of the FBI Gang Task Force, HSI and my agency have helped develop trust and eased coordination with the continuing investigations. Each agency has a role and cooperates fully with the other agencies.

The Thin Line That is Injustice It is common practice for law enforcement officials to employ dubious and somewhat underhand methods in their quest for evidence. More often than not, it is apparent that the desire for convictions surpasses the prevalence of justice in such criminal matters. A prime example of this is evinced in the acquisition of evidence through undercover operations. To go "undercover" is to avoid detection by the entity one is observing, and especially to disguise one 's own identity or use an assumed identity for the purposes of gaining the trust of an individual or organization to learn or confirm confidential information or to gain the trust of targeted individuals in order to gather information or evidence.
