As a Whitney Police Department representative, I implemented programs for career day functions. This also includes demonstrations from my canine when requested by the teachers. Demonstration sizes ranged from gym size to classroom. Also, used my canine to aide with my “Stranger Danger” program; this program taught children how to recognize an unsafe situation and how to react to said situation. I am familiar with State Park principals, rules, and regulations, due to inter-departmental relationship with the Lake Whitney State Park. I worked regularly with local park rangers to aide as backup when requested.

I also work as a team member with other law enforcement agencies in the area. This allows for a fast paced work environment, in stressful situations. This type of work environment has aided in honing my ability to handle stressful situations, emergencies, and operate independently. Police officer job requires knowledge of Texas Criminal Laws, the Code of Criminal Procedures and the Penal Code.

Required to maintain and operate the Whitney Police Department headquarters, company vehicles and company issued equipment. Working as a police officer for Whitney Police Department requires much time spent on a computer, using all forms of office equipment. All reports are typed; all daily activities are recorded in logs. Other forms and logs are completed on varying lengths of time. For example, my canine log varies on time frame depending on changing requirements to keep the canine’s certification. I was trained through local Emergency and Fire department in basic first aid and CPR. I have the ability to follow and lead. I am a field training officer. This is a very involved task that requires daily documentation, safety, training, community policing, knowledge of policies and procedures, people skills, and required to work in all kinds of situations in various weather conditions during all times of the day.

Reserve Patrolman, May 2000-August 2001

Blooming Grove Police Department, Blooming Grove, Texas


I have had no formal training in interpretation but I have put on different types of programs for children. This has been easy for me due to my ability to work courteously and effectively with the public.

I have a knowledge and understanding of state park law enforcement principle from working with local park ranger for the past 4 years. I also understand many park rules and regulations because I like to frequent state and national parks when I have some free time.

Revenue collection: Customer service manager at Wal-Mart I was over all the registers in the store and also ran a register when needed. Chambers Creek Marina I was assistant manager which included running a register. Eckerd Pharmacy I was a cashier. Cici’s Pizza I ran a register. Kerens Police Department I collect revenue off of city warrants.

General Maintenance techniques, use of hand tools, power tools, equipment, vehicles: For Law enforcement I have operated many vehicles from trailers to large trucks. I have driven brush trucks for the local volunteer fire department. When I worked for the evergreen air center I drove a large fire truck to fight fire. In the military I also drove many different vehicles. In civilian jobs and around my house I have operated standard vehicles, forklifts of various sizes, tow vehicles called tugs to tow planes, trailers, boats, motorcycle, atv, mule, back hoe, trencher, bull dozer, riding lawn mower, sky lifts, bucket lift, tractors, grader, jack hammer and many other vehicles. I have also used many tools. I have used jack hammers, arc welder, many tools related to automotive work, used most all tool concerning wood work, have used many air tools for all purposes in construction, worked with epoxies, glues. I have also used a lathe for wood work. I worked in a metal shop and have had some experience with metal presses. Many yard tools: shovel, rake, weed eater, edger, tiller, shears, push mower, pick axe, hoe, spade, vibrator for cement work, trowels, power washer, grinders, and water hoses with nozzles.

Custodial Duties: I maintained campground facilities at the Chambers Creek Marina, general custodial work at Wal-Mart, have waxed and buffed floors with machines, mopped, swept, clean toilets and bathroom fixtures, unclogged drains, did custodial work at Eckerds, Cici’s Pizza, John’s trailer park, Abbots Welding, Whitney Police Department.

Basic report writing: Report writing has been a daily activity in my career as a police officer. I have also completed monthly reports for current position and my past positions in management.

I use basic math in my everyday life.

I am skilled with many pieces of office equipment: phones, fax, copier, computers, calculator, radio, printer, scanner, stapler, hole punch, credit card machine, hand scanners, and filing cabinets. To go further on the computer, the police department has many specific computer programs that are used for daily operation. I also use the computer for all my personal needs. Some programs that I use regularly will be the internet, Microsoft Office, word pad, paint, Adobe, Microsoft Outlook, and media players.

I am skilled in verbal and written communication. I have to interact with all kinds of people as part of my daily job duties. Also, I have given programs to children at schools, after school programs and libraries. When I managed in prior jobs I had to communicate in both fashions. Being a field training officer involves both methods of communication in order to form a young officer and help aid his learning in becoming an independent officer. This skill was earned by working many positions independently and as a team member. Most of my jobs have been a fast paced environment that requires making sound and timely decisions, in all types of situations and environments.

Skilled in First Aid, CPR, and emergency procedures. Have had various small first aid classes. Being that I work for police agencies, we had to keep a basic knowledge of first aid and CPR. But, our most current agency procedures are not very extensive.

My ability to work courteously and effectively comes very natural to me. I consider myself a people person. I had used this ability when working with the teams that I have worked with in the past and present. This ability has also aided in my work with subordinates and supervisors. This trait is especially handy when having to train workers in different stressful situation or emergencies.

Safety is present in all jobs. I have always followed protocols to make the work environment as safe as possible. Also, it is good to have plans for when accidents happen. I believe training helps prevent accidents. I have helped start some general guidelines with co-workers to make them aware of some hazards in the work environment.

I considered myself to be in very good condition. My past work experience has made me a “Jack of All Trades” kind of individual. Most of my jobs have been dependant on my physical ability which has helped me keep my physical fitness side of my life. I work out on a regular basis. Not only for myself but for the others that may depend on me.
