As a professional or law-abiding citizen, anyone dealing with Ronald Fowlkes needs to know that he’s quite serious about his profession. And to put things simply, his profession is law enforcement, combat training and being a keeper of the peace. He is quite knowledgeable about his job and profession with a cadre of personal experience in tow. Starting from the top with the newest first, his list of employment includes Eagle Industries Unlimited where he is the Business Development Manager of Law Enforcement and Commercial products. In the course of his work, day he makes calls to customers, ensures that 150 sales personnel are educated on their sales product, and he is involved with product development and selection for sale. For sure, this is a big deal. But, it’s not the most impressive position on his resume, debatably.
His previous experience includes working with the Department of Defense as a contractor and working with the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization. This previous position is with United States Army while working in Iraq. The duties entailed with that position include the mounting and dismounting of infantry operations while in a combat zones no less. Ronald also has experience in teaching military personnel about tactical operations, hostage rescue, post-blast analysis evidence collection, and other strategic activities of that nature.
His law enforcement experience spans more than a dozen years, with a decade in the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Department and just three years with the St Louis County Police Department. Amazingly enough, he even manages to throw in seven years of service with the Saint Louis Metropolitan HRT team. This is an extremely dangerous yet rewarding job, and he is personally involved with high-risk entries into high-crime areas for more than 250 takedowns a year. And, when he’s not protecting the neighborhood from bad men by kicking in doors and doing what other people are frankly afraid to do, his unit and its members work and more so on investigations, which track gang activity and illegal gun possession. He also keeps his finger on the pulse of the narcotic activity in his community, as a law enforcement professional.
But, Ronald Fowlkes is not just a brave and courageous man of action. He is also a Marine. His service record includes the years 1989 through 1993. And in that time, he is promoted twice. He is also a veteran of the first Gulf War. And have no doubts, his esteamed record of service is not something that he just stumbled into or settle for. There are quite a few prestigious training institutions on his resume as well. For example, he is a former attendee of the Marine Combat Training program at the Marine Corps School of Infantry. His training also includes basic engineering at the air Naval Gunfire Liaison company. There is a little bit of US Army Parachute School in there as well.
