I am a retired Iowa law enforcement officer with over 35 years of highly successful investigative experience, including over 23 years as an Iowa Chief of Police. I hold Peace Officer Certifications in both Iowa and South Dakota, and have served as a City, County and Federal sworn law enforcement officer, including 3 1/2 years as a Federal Task Force Officer (TFO) with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) division of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).   

I have trained, lead and supervised the investigative efforts of many subordinates, in cases ranging from homicide investigations as well as having investigated accidental, unattended and suspicious deaths, sexual assault and abuse, significant embezzlement cases, complex financial, money laundering and tax crimes, and multi-state and international human smuggling and trafficking investigations, election fraud, and all varieties of lesser crimes.
