He currently holds the rank of Correctional Officer III. He is a veteran officer who has proven himself to be both extremely reliable and a consummate professional, according to his superiors.

"His work ethics and attitude are of the highest level and he is the epitome of the kind of officers employed at the Reeves County Detention Center," said RCDC Warden Rudy Franco.
