I have served as a police officer for 28 years in the Town of Norton. I have served on the Patrol division for the first 12 years of my career and the last 16 years in the Detective division. I'm currently the Police Prosecutor for the Town of Norton. Throughout my career I have served the Norton Police Association as Secretary, Vice President, and President. During this time I have been part of the bargaining committee, bargaining collective bargaining contracts.
I was a founding member of Massachusetts FOP Lodge #30 and served as President and Vice President in my local lodge. I have served the Massachusetts Fraternal Order of Police State Lodge as Vice President and now serving the position of President for the last 5 years. I have also been appointed and have served on the National FOP, future development committee. The State lodge has made great strides over this time and I look forward to continuing the positive direction in which the FOP is going in the State of Massachusetts.
