Doug Traubel is a thirty-two-year veteran peace officer with a Master’s Certification from (POST) Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training.
Doug’s career began in Chula Vista, California, seven miles from the US − Mexico border. His assignments included patrol officer, field training officer, SWAT team, and Street Team (a proactive patrol unit that targeted gangs and series related crimes, i.e., robbery and other special enforcement projects). In the interview, Traubel explains how, as a new policeman in a town seven miles from the Mexican border, he attended an academy run by the San Diego Sheriff. It was there that he learned the difference between police and sheriff. Traubel said, “A city is a municipal corporation, and so city police are basically, in a manner of speaking, security officers for a municipal corporation.”
Traubel said police chiefs are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of a city’s mayor, whereas the office of sheriff is a Constitutional position. Sheriffs are elected by the people to protect their liberties as outlined in the Constitution.
Doug graduated from The San Diego County Sheriff’s Academy in 1986. and from San Diego State University with a BA in political science (emphasis on constitutional law) and a minor in the Spanish language.
In 1993, Doug was awarded the medal of valor for his response to three hostile, armed men he and his partner confronted while on plain-clothes foot patrol in the alley of a high-crime apartment complex.
Traubel’s book, Red Badge: A veteran peace officer’s commentary on the Marxist subversion of American Law Enforcement & Culture, was published in 2016. The book explores the militarization of America’s police forces, the growing trend of incarceration for profit, and the steady erosion of individual rights, among other topics. The book is well-researched and presents verifiable facts. He discusses in the interview the creation of a police state is the result of an under-educated population.
