I became interested in genealogy working with my great-aunt Hazel Wildes Mancil and her work with the Wildes family.

I worked for over 30 years throughout the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, primarily in the correctional environment. I retired in 2016 with the appointed rank of Director of the Department of Corrections, managing three correctional facilities and the Jacksonville Reentry Center, with over 3400 incarcerated persons and 800 employees with a budget of over 90 million dollars. I was certified by the state of Florida in both corrections and law enforcement, and as an instructor by the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission of Florida. I'm currently employed with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office as their Reentry Coordinator, as a consultant with Wildes, Bowen & Associates, LLC and as an adjunct instructor with Florida State College at Jacksonville. Additionally, I work as a part-time sports photographer and mental health/criminal justice reform advocate.

I have started [https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Wildes_Name_Study Wildes-Wilds-Wiles surname project], please join me!

Hi, First of all thank you for your service at the Sheriffs office, and in corrections. My oldest daughter worked in that field for a few years. It also shows we are 6th cousins through my mom's mother's side. (John Alexander O'Steen) Nice to meet you.

Thank you Shan! Great to meet you as well, and my daughter in law was a Ward, maybe there's a connection there too.
