Chief Jane Castor Appoints New Members of Her Executive Staff
Major Kenneth Morman will oversee the Criminal Investigations Division, overseeing all homicide, sex crimes and family violence, criminal tracking and hit and run investigations advocating for victim's families and building connections in our community to solve high-profile crimes. After 29 years of conducting major investigations, he was a natural choice for this position. As a Lieutenant and Captain, Major Morman spearheaded some of the Department's largest and longest drug investigations, and most recently tasked his squads with dismantling the prescription drug diversion market by targeting illegal "pill mills."
During his career, he has worked as a Narcotics Bureau detective and supervisor, a patrol officer and plain-clothes supervisor.
The newly appointed Major graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Saint Leo University. He is also a graduate of the Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration's Drug Unit Commander Academy. He also served in the United States Army.
Major Jill Kwiatkowski will now lead District I in South and West Tampa where she began her 29-year career. As a Lieutenant and Captain, Kwiatkowski was very instrumental in the impressive crime reduction achieved every year in that district.
But, she is most proud of her impact on the Department's Field Training Officer Program. She has been an integral part of developing and implementing Tampa's training curriculum and overseeing the future officers of the Tampa Police Department. She has worked in every rank in the Field Training Program from Officer, Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain.
Major Kwiatkowski also developed the SoHo Policing Program where officers are designated along Howard Avenue to serve as liaisons to the businesses and residents in the area.
The 29-year veteran has worked in patrol in all three districts. She has also served as a Street Anti-Crime Officer, DUI Officer and an Internal Affairs Detective. Major Kwiatkowski has a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from Western Connecticut StateUniversity.
Captain David Goodman will lead the Strategic Operations Bureau overseeing the department's major drug and gang investigations.
With his combined 28-years of law enforcement experience between the Tampa Police Department and Scarborough Maine Police Department, Captain Goodman has a diverse background. Most recently, Goodman served as a ROC Lieutenant reducing crime in North Tampa. He also managed the Field Training Officer Evaluation Program in his district. As a Sergeant, Goodman developed the Department's first Economic Crimes Unit to combat the fastest growing crimes in Tampa. He also served as a Sergeant over the School Resource Officers in Middle and High Schools. This was a natural step for Goodman, because as an officer he taught drug and alcohol prevention through the Mendez Foundation in Hillsborough County Schools. He has served in all three patrol districts as a Detective, Field Training Officer, Child Abuse and Domestic Violence Investigator.
The newly appointed Captain will lead the Bike Rapid Response Team for the Republican National Convention in 2012. He will oversee all law enforcement bicycle officers for the event.
Captain Goodman earned a Master of Science Degree in Justice Administration from Norwich University in Vermont and a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from University of Southern Maine. He is married with two children.
Captain Charles Courtoy will work to reduce crime by overseeing patrol operations in District One where he has spent half of his 23-year career.
Florida's Attorney General recently selected Captain Courtoy to serve on the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission. In this prestigious role, he is one of 19 law enforcement professionals overseeing the credentials of all corrections and law enforcement officers in the state of Florida.
Captain Courtoy was also one of Tampa's first Community Oriented Police Officers in West Tampa. He served our citizens in that capacity as an Officer and Corporal for almost five years.
Courtoy has dedicated his career to fighting crime as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Sergeant over Quick Uniform Attack on Drugs (QUAD) Patrol and the Field Training Program. Most recently he served as a Lieutenant over the Rapid Offender Control (ROC) Squad.
Captain Courtoy has a Master of Science Degree from Troy State University in Public Administration and a Bachelor's Degree from Maryville College in Political Science. He was also valedictorian of the 124th Administrative Officer's Course at the Southern Police Institute at the University of Louisville.
Captain Courtoy is married with two children.
