    Police Sergeant with Fairfield Police Department

    Experience

    Police Sergeant, with a combined experience of 18 years of law enforcement. Serving the Solano community since 2003.

    How do you feel SHCC would benefit from your involvement as a Board member?

    I am a proud Latino with an extremely hard work ethic. I have served this community for over 17 years and will continue to do so. The Solano Hispanic Chambers of Commerce would benefit by having me serve its board by having a direct resource to the Fairfield Police Department. Many small Hispanic businesses have questions regarding laws and options they can have with their local police department.  I can attend forums and translate crucial information to the Hispanic community. No more waiting to get a representative from the local department on basic questions I can answer. I believe the community and police department need to work together. This is a perfect start in a long relationship we can both mutually benefit from.

    Please tell us anything else you’d like to share

    I’m extremely excited regarding this opportunity. I have been interested with serving on the board for over two years now. A change in leadership has provided an opportunity to allow me to serve and represent the Fairfield Police Department at the same time. In my heart I feel this is a great organization. I know I’ll be a true asset to the board and the Solano Hispanic Chambers of Commerce would truly benefit by having me serve on it. Thank you.

    Personally, I enjoy helping the community I live within. The benefit is knowing there are community members that are dedicated to bettering this world.  Working alongside individuals who also care about improving our Latino brothers and sisters on their journey to opening businesses and/or supporting those businesses.  It is statistically proven that giving back is the best way to get to know your community and citizens - having a broad, open-minded perspective of different walks of life, experience, and other cities I have lived in will help me be an effective and empathetic board member for SHCC.
