Arrnulfo Molina is 42 years old, born and raised on a ranch in Tucson, Az. I grew up in a very hard working class family and went to school in the city in the Southside of Tucson that also happened to be the ruffest and most violent part of town. I grew up having to go to school amoung the gang bangers and since my family values were very deeply rooted I had to protect my younger siblings. I learned to respect law enforcement at an early age because a lot of my family were in law enforcement. I joined the Sea Cadet program in 1984 and graduated with honors in 1986. I graduated high school in 1987 and in that time I co-lead my basketball team to a state championship. I dropped a college scholarship to join the Navy. I did a tour in the Persian Gulf Crises in 1988 and returned home to Tucson to pursue my Boxing career. I moved to Chicago in 1994 and began to pursue a cooking career. In 2005 a friend who was a Chicago Police Officer began to encourage me to pursue a law enforcement career. I took his advice and got my Security License in 2006 and began working as Tactical Security Officer in the projects of Chicago. We were given partial police powers as we patroled certain areas of Chicago working with Chicago Police and Joint Task Force Operators targeting gang and drug areas. I have been involved in over 70 arrests and have been promoted to Tactical Sgt. in charge of spearheading operations and training all personal in company policy and tactics. I am currently attending ESI which is a very prominent Executive Protection School.
