In 2017 he was sworn in as a Police Officer and has worked each of the departments three patrol shifts. He currently serves as member of the bicycle unit, a CPR/First Aid instructor, Field Training Officer, and a background investigator.

Sgt. Porter authored a grant that secured funding for technology to support search and rescue operations, and now serves as a pilot for the drone unit. He successfully advocated for the department to authorize the load bearing vest for patrol.
