Joey was born and raised in Houston. He grew up around the department, his father having served with HPD for 38 years, retiring in 2015 as a Sgt. in CID. Joey graduated from Texas A&M University and worked for a few years in Houston before deciding that an office job was not for him and joined the “family business” in 2015. Honor graduate of class #223, he has spent all of his career so far at Central Patrol, where he is now a dayshift trainer. Outside of work he is working on his master’s degree, and will be graduating this December with a degree in Homeland Security. He likes to travel when possible and is a member and involved at Second Baptist Church. Joey was appointed to the board by Joe Gamaldi in 2019.
