    This week our hosts sit down with Officer Rick.  He is a military veteran who served in Iraq and has been with us for 21 years.   He has been in patrol, SWAT, CIB - Crimes Against Children, and now serves as our Grand Jury liaison.   He has double-digit years of experience as a patrol officer and detective.   

    He has been around the block a time or two, always has a smile on his face, and is willing to help anyone.  He's such a handsome man that he has been mistaken for a "special entertainer" when he was dispatched to address loud party calls.   Let's dig into it!

    Marcos the Brazilian

    Marcos the Brazilian

    This week our hosts sit down with Sergeant Marcos.  He has taken quite a journey to get to us. 

    He was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  He was in the Brazilian military, Brazilian police force, then worked in the IT field.  Work brought him to Canada, then to the US  (Texas) where he continued to work in IT.  His desire to serve again brought him to Alaska as a police officer and where he tried not to freeze in -30 degree weather.  He then gained his US citizenship and came back to Texas as a LEO where he later became a SWAT officer.   He transferred to GPPD as an officer and was later promoted to Sergeant.  He now leads our Criminal Intelligence Unit and Drone Unit and has been with us for over 8 years.  He has 17 years’ experience in law enforcement. 

    He is too smart for his own good.....and loves some Picanha Churrasco so he is OK in our book!  Let's dig into it!

Laurenboh3 ,

Great Listen!

So glad my friend recommended this Podcast. I enjoyed listening to our local officers. It was interesting hearing about their personal lives, how they ended up in GP and about their role at the department. After listening to 4 of the podcast so far it sounds like GP Police Department is a great place to be and I love that they value family. Keep them coming Nate and KD!
