He joined the Bismarck Police Department in 1975 and continued his service to the community until he retired from duty as Deputy Chief in 2007.  He was dedicated throughout his 32 years of service to his community and his family at the Bismarck Police Department.  He spoke often of how proud he was to have served his community and his fellow officers.
