​​​​​Badge of Color - Breaking the Silence, a memoir.

I began writing the first draft of my memoir in 1972, about being the first black police officer hired in Orange County, CA for the Santa Ana Police Department in 1966.

Here it is 2017 and near completion! The time is right...

More about this experience, excerpts from the book, photos and more can be found under the Memoir and Vault tabs.


Post police officer - Follow my life adventures and blessings at the second level (1972-current) of the About tab! 


I live in California with my wife and five very loving and very spoiled dogs. In my free time I enjoy gardening (very capable green thumb!) and cooking up a variety of new recipes.
