Officer Doyle is a 20 year veteran police officer who helped develop and implement the City's Character Counts program for junior high students. His work ethic shows his dedication to keeping the community safe. He positively affected countless "at risk" students in Milpitas schools. He has counseled students, who have been victims of bullying and mental issues. Officer Doyle worked diligently as an active member of the Milpitas Hostage Negotiation Team, where the Milpitas Police Department hosted their first Tri-County Hostage Negotiation training this past October for 150 police officers.
He is charismatic, friendly, and always willing to take extra time to listen to citizens' concerns. He was an advisor to the MPD Explorer Program with goals to expand training and recruitment. Officer Doyle also serves as a volunteer commissioner for the Milpitas Junior Giants Police Athletic League and he devotes his personal time to other community organizations such as the 4-H Program and San Jose Youth Ballet. He has volunteered to mentor and sing at local convalescent homes.
