I remember him when I was in high school at Alhambra High School. He was the school resource officer at the time. He was always very friendly and very professional. Im very pleased to see he was awarded the officer of the year award!!!

A well deserved honor for Officer Muncher. He is a wonder role model for the children of Martinez.

Martinez once had a great Reserve Program – Huge asset to the taxpayers. I hope Tyson builds it to be on par with Walnut Creek PD. Pleasant Hill POA is so pathetic and self serving that they don’t endorse city council candidates who want more Reserve Officers.

@ Russ- That is Martinez City Council member Lara Delaney. She toned down her hair for that night. Here is a more representative picture. http://profile.ak.fbcdn.net/hprofile-ak-prn1/48984_1630343073_6658_n.jpg

Be careful though, she used blackmail during the last election season.

@Safety Second- I am very familiar with their reserve program. Many years ago, it was huge and did a great job. But lately the “brass” and city hall side of things really hindered the program. You were hired depending on who you knew. It is a shame really.
