A Strong History
During his law enforcement career, Bill trained police officers as a Field Training Officer and was assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit as a detective investigating complex economic and computer related crimes. After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Bill was assigned to a multi-jurisdictional task-force, the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation (MBI), where he was federally deputized as a Special Federal Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DOJ/DEA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS/ICE) “Blue Light” Human Trafficking Task Force, and the Department of Justice (DOJ/FBI) “Safe Streets” Task Force. Collectively, Bill acquired over twenty-six (26) years of law enforcement operations and investigative experience.
Bill retired from the Orlando Police Department in December of 2013 and continued to serve residents of Orange County in a volunteer capacity as a Reserve Orlando Police Officer. Then in March of 2015, Bill resigned his appointment of Reserve Orlando Police Officer to seek public office as a candidate for Orange County Commissioner. Bill advocates for a change in public policy to allow for a safer Orange County and sustained, responsible, economic growth while ensuring fiscal responsibility in allocating budgets to governmental departments and offices.
