Technology has changed the way we do our work. It has improved my job because the attorneys have more ways of getting their jobs done, and it makes my job a lot easier. Qualifications: 1) Darien special police officer for 7 years, 2) retired deputy sheriff for Fairfield County, 3) going on my fifth term as a Darien constable.

My qualifications for the position of constable are that I have over 30 years experience in the private security industry. I hold private investigator and watch guard licenses in numerous states including Connecticut. I deal with a variety of different lawyers, clients as well as other security organizations (both private and governmental) on a daily basis.
In my investigations I have found that technology has greatly increased my ability to find information quicker.
