BOARDS & COMMUNITY RECOGNITION
I am committed to building partnerships and learning insight from other communities and subject area expertises. Throughout my career, it has been important to me to seek out opportunities to participate in organizations that can help me become a better law enforcement officer and a better manager. I have gained invaluable insight and built lasting relationships from collaborating with experts throughout the city of Long Beach, the county of Los Angeles, and have even played a leadership role in national and international organizations.
Below is a partial list of my community involvement and recognition throughout my tenure.
I served on the Executive Board of the Major City Chiefs Association (MCCA) as the Western Region Representative from 2019 to 2021. As the Western Region Representative, I represented nine states and 20 major cities and took a leadership role on national policing matters like police reform, recruitment, and federal legislation advocacy. I am honored to be a lifetime member of the MCCA.
