Togliatti said Lawson has experience in multiple divisions of the Department of Public Safety as well as the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. He has worked with the Highway Patrol where, as a lieutenant, he established the NHP Research and Planning Section.
Most recently, he has been a captain overseeing P&P personnel and general services.
