   Tommy is a 10 year municipal police officer working in the south Chicagoland area. In his former life he was a truck driver and worked at a Boy Scout camp. He works as an Field Training Officer (among other things) teaching new probationary officers the things the academy doesn't. He also works as a freelance security guard on the side.

   Free Field training was his brainchild. It started out as an experiment to make training videos on mundane law enforcement topics like how to take good notes and tell if money was fake so that he could save his voice instead of having to talk for eight hours a day and allow him to get his paperwork done.

   Tommy considers his greatest accomplishments to be the careers of the officers he has trained. He hopes one of them will be chief some day so that he can land a nice cush desk job his last few years on the force.
