As Captain, he led the Operations and Support Divisions, overseeing the Uniform Division, the Police Communications Center, Training Division, Field Training Coordinator and Special Events. As the Field Training Coordinator, he updated and directed the rewriting of the Field Training Manual and created the first Standard Operating Procedures manual for the FAU Police Department Communications Division. He also designed the department’s first strategic plan outlining a five-year strategy to successfully recruit, hire and retain qualified candidates for employment. This plan focused on techniques in quality control such as identifying the departments Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT).
