After attending High School in Richmond, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in the Vietnam War. After serving his country honorably, he moved to New York City to pursue his deep-rooted passion for security services and law enforcement.
After almost 15 years in the Security Department at Calvary Hospital in The Bronx, NY, he joined Mid-City Security in Lefrak City, NY in 1987 and was ultimately deputized as a Special Patrolman by the NYPD. Concurrently, John rose through the ranks of Queens' 106 Precinct's Auxiliary Police Division where he served for over 35 years and reached the rank of Auxiliary Lieutenant.
