Hi,I just wanted to help with adding a little information to the parents & students about me.

I  have been in Law Enforcement for over 20 years,  I am presently employed with the Colonial Beach Police Department as a Sergeant from the Patrol Division.and  now the new SRO (School Resource Officer)., for Colonial Beach High School. I have a wide variety of  teachings and  training,from  the Rappahannock Criminal Justice Academy, and Prince William Criminal Justice Academy,. My present training through the Colonial Beach Police Department , I have received my training as a BAC (Breath Analysis Operator) at the Department of Forensics in Richmond, Virginia.. My Supervisors training and SRO Training  is through the Virginia State Police Academy and Virginia Polytechnic University., all certifications are through the Department of Criminal Justice. It is obvious that this is not just a Job, but it is my Career.
I am the proud Mother of 5, wonderful , smart, entrepreneur Children, 13  beautiful, smart Grandchildren,. I am very blessed to have had the help from God, my Parents, my Family and some special Friends, who all stood  by me when iI decided to make Law Enforcement my Career.  My Grand-Parents would always say, "It takes a Village to raise a child", with that being said as adults we know that our children need our guidance in building a healthy, obedient adult. life.  I know that our children have a lack of maturity and an under-developed since of responsibility that can lead to recklessness, impusivity & restraint. Our children can be vulnerable to negative influences and outside pressures, from their peers, and sometimes family.. They may in some instances have "limited control" over their own environment & lack the ability to extricate themselves from horrific crime producing settings, thus one of the reasons why I accepted this position as School Resource Officer..While having the  Passion for the job, I have an even more so Compassion for our young children. My goal will be to produce a safe, educational environment and daily focus on them reaching their goals.and not end up in the Criminal System .I truly believe that education is one of the major keys to their success..
