|MIAMI POLICE DEPARTMENT
|In the Police Academy, it was
Ken Racine and Bob Vance who were our main coordinators. Ken was a real pain in the ass sometimes but if you weren't tough enough for him, you wouldn't make it.

|My first and best ever Field Training Officer, Bobby
This picture was taken after he retired.
|My motorcycle training officer, Joe Dillin and his assistants. I remember those days at Virginia Beach in the sand burying the tires down in.|
|My academy buddy, later my supervisor, Mike Jones.
We had some good times working together, some I would rather not share!
Virginia Beach was the best zone in the city - enough said!
This picture is Mike and his wife Barbara
|Captain Dick Witt. After leaving the motorcycle squad I went to Patrol and worked for one of the best commanders I met. Later, after retirement, both of us live in Ormond Beach, Florida and helped run the M.P.D. Alumni Reunions from 2002 to 2005.|
|Sgt. Bruce Wiggins in Communications. Bruce taught me a lot about the computer system for dispatching (C.A.D.) and I later was assigned to the Computer Liasion Unit for the Police Dept. We coordinated all computer requests for the Dept. of Computers and Police Dept.|
|Brent Helms and I were assigned together at one time to the Computer Support Unit. Brent managed the PC's (actually Burroughs B25 and B38 computers) and I handled the mainframe. We were almost the computer "guru's" !||
