Spending all of his professional career with Holland Public Safety, Sgt. Weiss started as a police cadet in 1990 before being hired as an officer in 1993. In his 28 years behind the badge Sgt. Weiss served as a community police officer, field training officer, firearms instructor and was a member of the department Special Enforcement Team.
Sgt. Weiss currently serves as a patrol shift supervisor. He was nominated for being “an excellent ambassador for the HDPS, an outstanding supervisor, and a stellar, all-around cop," according to a release.
