Given that Bob has served in Adams, Cumberland, York, Franklin, and Dauphin counties, he has a working relationship with the District Attorney’s Offices in each of these counties. In 2008, Bob attended the Leadership in Police Organizations which is modeled after the training concept of dispersed leadership (“every officer a leader”).

Bob has been a leader in ACT 67 Compliance and School Safety with his attendance and completion of multiple levels of NASRO Training (Basic SRO, Advanced SRO, Adolescent Mental Health Training, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, and Supervision of an Effective SRO Program).

He was named the Maryland State Athletic Directors Association Athletic Director of the Year on multiple occasions.

Craig works very closely with several local school district athletic directors to review their security needs for athletic events in an effort to keep student-athletes, coaches, officials, families, and fans safe. 

     During the last few years, Craig's role at G-Force Security Solutions has expanded beyond local athletic events. Currently, he oversees our Unarmed Security Division which provides trained security guards for a variety of businesses, community events, athletic events, etc...
