Tony entered the Pennsylvania State Police Academy in Hershey, Pa in July of 1984 as a member of the 56th Cadet Class. Upon graduation he was assigned to the Patrol Unit in Uniontown, Fayette County. The Uniontown station was the busiest State Police installation in the Commonwealth. He responded to every kind of police call including homicides, robberies, domestic incidents, motor vehicle accidents, DUI’s, etc. In 1986 Tony transferred to the New Castle station where he spent 3 years as a member of the Patrol Unit, responding to the same types of calls.
In 1989 the State Police re-established their Motorcycle Patrol Unit. Tony was in the first group selected to attend a 2 week training regimen with the US Park Police in Washington D.C. and upon successful completion was assigned to the Motorcycle Patrol at Findlay, patrolling the Pittsburgh Parkway.
Tony again expanded his police experience and in 1992 was selected to become a member of the Troop B Vice Unit, conducting undercover Drug, Gambling, and Prostitution investigations. Over the next 2 ½ years he made well over 100 felony arrests and received a Troop Commander’s Letter of Commendation for “Exceptional Effort” in numerous drug investigations.
In 1995 Tony went through a rigorous physical, mental, and tactical selection process and was chosen to join the State Police Special Emergency Response Team (SERT). SERT responds to incidents such as barricaded gunmen, hostage situations, high-risk warrant service, executive protection, and crowd/riot control situations. Tony progressed in the unit from a point man on a 4 man entry team, to a Team Leader, to the Assistant Coordinator for the Western half of Pennsylvania, overseeing a 34 man unit that included 24 tactical members and 10 negotiators. As the Assistant Coordinator, he was responsible for training the team, interacting with heads of other agencies requesting service, and acting as site commander for numerous high-risk incidents. Because it is a part time unit, he remained on SERT through the end of his State Police career, training 3-4 days a month with the team and being on 24 hour call for in-progress incidents. Tony has taken part in the security details for two National Governors Association Conferences (State College and Philadelphia), the Pittsburgh G20 Conference, numerous Presidential Executive Protection Details, and Super Bowl/Stanley Cup crowd control details.

For the next ten years he conducted over a thousand Polygraph Examinations, assisting investigators in cases such as Homicides, Robberies, and Child Sexual Assaults. He also became a part of the Cadet Selection Process by administering pre-employment tests to potential new hires. Tony was awarded another Troop Commander’s Letter of Commendation for his polygraph work on the Officer James Naim homicide investigation. He received a 3rd Troop Commander’s Letter of Commendation for admissions he obtained during a polygraph procedure, leading to the arrest of a woman for the murder of her 2 year old son 30 years prior.
After the “Attack on America” on September 11, 2001 Tony was assigned as a part of the security structure during the investigation of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pa. Subsequently he was briefly assigned to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force until a Trooper could be assigned full time.
During his tenure as a polygraph examiner Tony was promoted “in-place” to Corporal. In 2007 he was promoted to Sergeant and oversaw Patrol Units in Dunmore, Indiana, and Uniontown, commanding as many as 60 Troopers and Corporals.
