I first started working in the security field as an armed security enforcement officer with the Kentucky Security Police a privately owned company in 1984. I have worked for several security firms here in Ky. As I progressed in the field I could see the need for proper training. I was already studying the martial arts (Tae Kwon Do) were I achieved the rank of 1st degree black belt and was successful in winning several championship. In 2009 I was hired in to the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The agency in which I work for is the Department of Juvenile Justice. I have attended The DJJ Academy at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond Ky. were I received Additional Training such as Aikido Control Techniques, Mechanical Restraints Techniques and Search and Seizure Technique. In 2011 I became a DOJCT Certified Firearms Instructor and teach Kentucky Carry Concealed Deadly Weapons Classes. I feel that you can never have enough training.
