My name is Donald J. Goossens. I am a police officer for the Los Angeles Police Department. I am currently assigned to the best unit I have ever worked for, Narcotics Group. I am assigned to the Field Enforcement Section investigating street level dealers. I love this job and highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to be a police officer. Before joining the LAPD I served 12 years of active duty with the US Navy, the last six were spent working with the finest warriors in the world THE US NAVY SEALS! While not a SEAL myself, I did work with and for them while assigned at Special Boat Unit 12. I loved the work so much that after getting out of the Navy and joining LAPD, I stayed in the Navy Reserves. I still work for the SEALS, but now I am assigned to Special Boat Squadron One which is in command of SBU 12. So I am doing exactly the same job as when I was active duty, but only part time...best of both worlds for me. I get a break from the police business once a month by going down to NAB Coronado for Reserves and also get to reacquaint myself with Navy Special Warfare. I stay in the Special Boat community because I feel that supporting the SEALS is an important job. It is also a task that I relish and seem to do well. My hobbies are running, swimming, fishing, hiking, the beach and also racquetball. I also collect comic books and of course I play on the NET!!!
This is me just after completing the San Diego Half Marathon. I finished in 1:47:25 and almost died doing it. I love running and running these races allows me to run with people who share that "affliction"!!!! This was taken on August 25th 1996.
