He was honorably discharged, and worked nights at the Morehouse Parish Sheriff’s Office, while pursuing an Economics degree at Northeast Louisiana University (now ULM).

He was the Deputy Commander of Region 3, Troop Commander of Troop E and Troop F, and retired in 1986 as the Director of the State Police Crime Lab in Baton Rouge.
