I have been a member of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) since 2005. I am originally from New Orleans and have been in Tennessee since the summer of 2001. My wife and I were both members of the US Army for 6 years and then attended Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) together. I have earned a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice Administration from MTSU and a Master's Degree in Public Service Management from Cumberland University.

After leaving the military and graduating college, I still felt the need to continue serving my community so I joined the MNPD. I've had the opportunity to work in various units of the department such as patrol, flex, Domestic Violence, and most recently the Recruitment Section. I am also a member of the police department's award winning Drill and Ceremony Team. As an African American who grew up in poverty in the 9th Ward of New Orleans, I witnessed firsthand the need for empathetic police officers. That's why I made the personal decision to become a part of the solution. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, fishing and music.

As someone who was born in Nashville and raised here for the majority of my life, I have always felt that law enforcement in this city was something that I would eventually be a part of. After high school, I obtained my Criminal Justice Degree and worked in the private sector for several years. I then joined the MNPD in 2002. During my career, I've had the opportunity to work the streets as a patrol officer for approximately 5 years, a Domestic Violence Detective for nearly 10 years and spent 3 years in the Office of The District Attorney General as a liason. I currently work in the Background and Recruitment Division as the Pre-Academy Coordinator.

As my diverse work background demonstrates, you can work in a number of different areas within the department from an officer on the streets to an investigator. Once you become an officer, you can even serve the department in other ways such as becoming a Peer Supporter, a negotiator or becoming a member of the Drill and Ceremony Team like I have done. A career with the MNPD can and will be what you want it to be. During my time off, I enjoy playing golf, reading, and spending time with my family. If you are interested in becoming an MNPD Officer, I encourage you to view our website and contact our Background and Recruitment Division for more information.

I have been a police officer with the Metro Nashville Police Department since the year 2000. I spent 6 years as a patrol officer in both Hermitage and Central Precincts. I then transferred to the School Resource Officer Unit (SRO) and spent the next 15 years of my career there. As an SRO, I was certified as a D.A.R.E. and G .R.E.A.T. instructor and taught both curriculums in elementary and middle schools. I am currently assigned to the Recruitment Unit.

I am originally from Memphis Tennessee and moved to Nashville in 1995 to attend Tennessee State University. While at TSU, I majored in Criminal Justice until I joined the MNPD and graduated the academy. I then finished my bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice from Columbia Southern University, graduating Summa Cum Laude.

I wanted to join the MNPD because I wanted to help the community, make a difference in the live of children and be the change that I wanted to see.

My name is Cecilia and I am originally from Argentina, South America. I never wanted to be a police officer because of the misconception that I had of the police in my home country. When I moved to Nashville, I worked with a non-profit organization rescuing women and children from sex trafficking. I worked numerous cases with different MNPD officers and FBI agents. That experience helped change my preconceived notions about police officers and made me want to become one. While I was waiting to be eligible to become a U.S. citizen, I went to college and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and then joined the MNPD. I worked at the Madison Precinct in patrol and the Community Affairs Division. Currently, I work in the Background and Recruitment Division.

I love the numerous opportunities that we have within the department and I am proud to be part of the MNPD. I always encourage people to be the change they wish to see in this world and that is why I joined.

I joined the Metro Nashville Police Department in hopes of making a difference in the lives of my community. I have been a Flex officer, CSU undercover officer, and worked as a Hermitage Patrol Officer for 15 of my 17 years. I believe that Nashville is a great city, and the police department should represent that. It is my hope that together we can build a police department that reflects the community we serve.
