Dave Field

From deputy chief to private investigator to LHS security guard, Mr. Dave Field has done it all.

“I was a police officer for 32 years. I retired as a deputy chief from Lake Forest Police Department,” said Mr. Field.

After attending Western Illinois University for law enforcement, Mr. Field immediately began working for the LFPD, eventually rising to position of deputy chief. However, he didn’t originally want to go into law enforcement. Mr. Field had always wanted to be a park ranger, but due to the lack of contact with people, he decided to take another route.

At the age of 55, Mr. Field retired, and soon joined a friend’s private investigating company. After a few years with the company, Mr. Field decided to look for alternative options, and saw the ad for a security position. Mr. Field has lived in Libertyville most of his life, and decided that becoming a security guard would be his way of giving back to the community he has been a part of.

“You want to give back. After living here and raising my kids in this town, you just want to give back,” Mr. Field said.
