In 2001 he volunteered for and successfully completed the Prisoner Transportation Officer Academy. Officer Molinar has been assigned as the Property/Transportation Officer since 2004.

Officer Molinar is consummate professional. He is well respected by professional agencies, staff, offenders, and the public.
