California Police Academy Study Guide Presenter

Michael "Andy" Rubacha

I began my career in law enforcement in 1988 and retired from Los Angeles County. Throughout my County law enforcement career, I have taken on collateral tasks as trainer, instructor and mentor to fellow law enforcement personnel of all ranks.

I have attended the LAPD Law Enforcement West Point Leadership Program and numerous other supervisory, management, and instructor training courses in law enforcement. I have obtained my Basic, Intermediate, Advance, Supervisory and Management POST certificates. As a college instructor, I have taught Criminal Justice to students interested in the field of law enforcement. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology. I have taken a keen interest in newly hired police trainees to mentor them for success. I have also facilitated career / promotional preparation courses for the past fifteen+ years.

Additionally, I was a member of the Air Force (Security Police), a Veteran of Desert Storm, and a life-member of the Veteran of Foreign Wars, Post 9148, having served as Post Commander and Senior Vice-Post Commander.

I have volunteered my time for more than fifteen years to coordinate and teach study groups for police academy (including Module D and re-certification) recruits/students. Over 1000 students attended my study groups. My desire is to continue benefiting the student/recruit in being successful to become the next generation police officer.
