I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer. Hopefully you were blessed with quality time alongside family and friends to relax following the past school year. Now with renewed enthusiam for the upcoming school year, I would like to express my excitement to be with you as your School Resource Officer (SRO). I am a member of the Samson Police Department and have been employed with them for two years, this being my second year as the SRO at Samson Middle/High School. I have been in law enforcement for seven years total, six years working as a road patrol officer. I graduated from Geneva High School in 2008 and joined the Army National Guard as a MP. Soon after my training I deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan with the 1165th MP Co. where I served for eleven months before returing stateside. I also had the opportunity to spend a summer camp in Romania where I was able to instruct some classes and cross train with the Romanian Army. This year marks ten years that I have served in the Army National Guard where I currently hold the rank of Sergeant.
I look forward to the opportunity of interacting with your students in any way I can as I focus on maintaing a safe learning environment for both students and staff. As we move forward into the school year. I am excited to assist you with any challenges that may arise, and to help educate students and staff on issues related to law enforcement and school safety.
