When you find a distributor of counterfeit products, you dont just ask for a search warrant. First, we work with undercover investigators to find how much product theyre hiding and where its located. Then, you work with law enforcement to obtain a search warrant to raid the warehouses and seize the fake products. While much of my professional experience involves busting creators of fake Super Bowl tickets, NASCAR memorabilia and sales, today the stakes are much higher. My team and I make undercover transactions and fly across the world at a moments notice for raids and seizures, all to find products containing fake UL Marks. Some products displaying a counterfeit UL Mark may pose a risk of electrocution and death, among other things. They have not been safety tested, and there is no-telling what could happen when plugging in a counterfeit adapter, etc. My team and I are saving lives by keeping counterfeit, dangerous products off store shelves.

Fake drugs were believed to be responsible for the deaths of a number of unsuspecting victims in a small Canadian city. You dont often think products like pharmaceuticals can be counterfeit, but that happened while I was working at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. These individuals had no idea what they were ingesting, trusting the local pharmacy that the drugs they were purchasing were legitimate. Most people dont realize how pervasive counterfeiting can be, but Ive seen businesses of all kinds lose profits to the flood of counterfeit products. From crayons, to eggs and handbags, if a criminal can make money counterfeiting it, they will. Not only do these products take down legitimate small businesses, but also pose a real public safety issue. Criminals can be clever, which means my anti-counterfeiting team and I are proactively watching for the next operation, whether that be lifejackets, lithium-ion batteries or even night lights.

Something about the prestige of a cops uniform drove me to law enforcement. Ironically, during some of the most memorable moments of my career, I wasnt wearing a badge. Working undercover for the Los Angeles County Sheriff''s Department, I dressed as a homeless man, sitting on street corners, watching for vandals and graffiti artists, who often played a larger role in neighborhood gang violence. I played the role so well people would drop money in my hat (which meant Id need to file a police report). Ive experienced all kinds of police work, from gang crime to corrupt cops. Although my experience with LASD sounds like a movie, what Ive really enjoyed is anti-counterfeiting investigations. Ive found that counterfeit products not only fuel the black market; but can also be a public safety concern. Counterfeit light bulbs may catch fire, while fake makeup may contain dangerous amounts of lead. Protecting intellectual property means going after products that display the UL Mark despite never passing our safety tests. After working 30 years with law enforcement, I now work for UL. The mission of UL and that of law enforcement is really the same: protecting lives and property. Im proud to be part of this company.

Street-level narcotics is some of the most dangerous police work, especially in a state like Texas. You run the risk of dealing with unstable people, gang wars and even shoot-outs. Doing undercover work, like I did, is inherently dangerousbut that threat is heightened when youre on a drug buy. One time, the dealers had moved all product from the stash house just hours before it took place, throwing off my cover team. My backup crew lost contact and I was off their radar for an extended period of time with thousands of dollars in my backseat. Just like any other business, organized crime evolves. They share information with each other, learn from their mistakes and find new ways to deceive. I love to study the evolution of the criminal and thats a lot of what I do today working in anti-counterfeiting. Im helping make the world a safer place for everyone, and to me that means preventing counterfeit products from reaching consumers.
