Dave Carrasquillo

My career has been devoted to serving my country, state, and community, beginning as a U.S. Marine with overseas deployments and an Honorable Discharge. My path led me from potential medical studies to graduating with honors from the California State Correctional Peace Officer Academy. My true passion emerged in law enforcement, culminating as a Police Detective in Inglewood, where I faced the daunting challenges of crime and witnessed profound tragedies. Despite the personal toll, including two heart attacks and multiple surgeries, my service earned me numerous awards for valor, including the highest recognitions for bravery from state and federal bodies.

Post-retirement, I transitioned from public service to specialized support, dedicating over a decade to neurofeedback with IASIS Technologies, focusing on the less than 1% of the population—our military and first responders suffering from substance abuse, mental health issues, and trauma. As President of Valored, I commit to aiding those who have served, honoring the sacrifices made in the line of duty.

This dedication is in memory of Officer Melvin Green, a fallen brother whose service ended too soon.
