Law Enforcement
Where Law, Science and the Street Meet

by Sydelle Pomi

My first question to Julio Nunez, who will be teaching Law Enforcement: Where Law, Science and the Street Meet, was how he came to be interested in the subject matter. He replied that by chance when he was nineteen he met a retired lieutenant from the Los Angeles Police Department, a meeting that led to his profession.
The course will present a historical view of law enforcement. Julio will discuss changes in the approaches of law enforcement groups, as well as specific topics including homicides, white-collar crime,
human trafficking, gangs, and drugs. It’s a fascinating subject taught by an interesting man. Julio has spent twenty-six years in law enforcement and sixteen years as a fraud investigator.
Julio grew up in a barrio in Riverside where opportunities were limited. When he was in elementary school, his teachers told him that Mexicans do not go to college and hoped he was good with his hands. Later he worked for the Sheriff’s Department in the jail division where the
“arrestees” are held awaiting trial to determine their sentence.
Knowing he would be able to further his education under the G. I. Bill of Rights, he volunteered to serve in the U.S. Military from June of 1969 until 1971, where he was an M.P. and an investigator.
His life’s journey is worthy of admiration. How does one pull himself up from the barrio, not able to speak English until he was ten years old, then achieve a B.S. in Criminology and an M.P.A with an emphasis on Criminal Justice at USC.? It takes intelligence, drive, and a heap of dedication. Julio lives in Los Alamitos with his wife and seven children.
