MEMPHIS – Looking for a place to round out his already 20-plus years in law enforcement, Officer D.W. Griffin chose Memphis – more specifically the Memphis Police Department – to cap off his extensive resume.

“I’ve been working in law enforcement since about 2000,” Griffin said.

Starting his law enforcement journey in the Lubbock Police Department’s Explorer Post as a teenager, it wasn’t long before Griffin worked his way into the ranks, joining the Potter County Sheriff’s Office as a correctional officer/deputy in April 2001.

Obtaining his peace officer license in 2004, Griffin then served as a patrolman at the Amarillo Police Department in 2005, where he worked in a specialized unit – Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving (COPPS).

From there, Griffin served as a patrolman for the Farwell Police Department from 2014 until 2020, when he moved to Grand Prairie to spend time with family.
