In 1982, Doug joined the New York City Police Department as a Police Officer and was assigned to Upper Manhattan. Throughout his illustrious career, he was assigned to various specialized units, including Community Affairs, the Community Patrol Officer Program, the Boy Scouts Police Explorer Program, and the Traffic Enforcement Unit. Doug received many awards, medals, and commendations from his supervisors and the citizens in his precinct.

As a young man, Doug’s love for football was formed when he joined the Pittsburgh Steelers and played for the Team during that season. He played for the Defensive Team and years later would always be seen wearing his signature Number 57 Football Jersey.

Upon their mutual retirements from the NYPD, Doug and Marilyn moved their family to Deltona, Florida. In keeping with their love of Law Enforcement, Doug and Marilyn were hired as Criminal Investigators with the State of Florida. They have always been know for their funny sense of humor, their uncanny way of making people laugh, and most of all their warmth and compassion when you were in their home.
