Derrick was hired as a police ofﬁcer at the age of 20 (The youngest in the city’s history) and has been there for 11 years. During that time, he has worked in the Detective Division, investigating crimes, ranging from motor vehicle theft to murder. Derrick has also worked as an undercover Detective in the Special Investigations Unit, posing as a college student, a pimp, and a drug dealer, just to name a few.
At the age of twenty-three, Derrick was involved an a critical incident where he fatally shot a man who was attempting to stab him with a knife. He received the “Medal of Valor” for his actions.
