While at the UTSA Police Department he was recommended to become a Drug Recognition Expert and he has been a certified DRE for the last four years.  He is an ALERRT Instructor, SFST Instructor, and TCOLE Instructor.  He is also a member of the bike patrol.  He has instructed the Health and Safety Code at the UT System Police Academy for the last two years.
In 2012 and 2014, he was selected as a recipient of the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Enforcement Hero Award, which is presented to a select few Officers from around the region and State of Texas for their efforts in enforcing the DWI and DUI laws and removing intoxicated drivers from behind the wheel, which prevents countless tragedies every year.  

In 2013 he was awarded the Distinguished Service Award by UT System Police Director Heidingsfield.
