Expert's Profile

I am a recently retired 30 year LAPD lieutenant. In addition to consulting and expert work I am also involved as a talent/host for television. I am in production for an investigative series due for release in 2017.

I accept cases after initial review. In addition, I also provide technical consulting for the entertainment industry.

During my police career I have been the Officer-in-Charge of several well known police units, including, The Special Investigation Section, Homicide I-Robbery Homicide Division and Criminal Investigation Section, Counter-Terrorism Bureau-Joint Terrorism Task Force. In terms of police practices I have testified as an expert for my Department on major crowd control events. Much of my police career has been as a manager and supervisor in charge of complex undercover operations. In 2010 I led the team that re-wrote the LAPD Undercover and Plain-Clothes Directives. I have been the primary architect in the development of the Undercover Operator Selection Process. In this capacity I developed relevant selection criteria for any detective applying for a tactical surveillance assignment.

In addition to these managerial assignments I have worked as a police officer and sergeant in the following sections, K9, Vice, Internal Affairs and Gang Enforcement. On a personal note as a police officer I was involved in several major incidents that can be discussed with potential clients. These experiences give me relevant and current experience in the areas of shooting policy and use of deadly force.

My Private Security experience is as an owner, manager and operator of a company. I have expertise in the areas of supervision, discipline and BSIS or any State mandated compliance.
I am also a licensed private investigator in the state of California.

My area of coverage is nationwide.
