Vincent Mazzara has been a law enforcement professional for 30+ years, starting his career as a Detroit Police Officer; with the hope of helping and changing peoples’ lives. Having worked multiple federal undercover investigations, he was twice ‘nominated’ to the International Association of Police Chiefs as one of the 10 Best Police Officers in the country. He was subsequently honored as a recipient of the ‘Medal of Honor’ by the Governor of Michigan for his investigations. He has assisted the Governor’s Domestic Violence Task Force, was a member of the National and State Domestic Violence Fatality Review teams and coordinated several community domestic violence task forces. In 1997 he was appointed by the Palm Beach County Sheriff to spearhead a new Domestic Violence Program where they created a community awareness program. Under his leadership the program was awarded a Department of Justice grant to start an ‘internet project’ where photographic evidence, taken at the domestic violence crime scene was loaded to a secure website and available to the judge, prosecutors and advocates, in court the very next morning. After many years as a police officer, he now works for the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence working with police, prosecutors and families.
